ReadersMagnet exhibited the fascinating memoir “Blind Journey: A Journalist’s Memoirs” by Jack Hawn at the New York Library Association 2022 Annual Conference and Trade Show on November 3–4, 2022, at Saratoga Springs City Center at 522 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, and the ReadersMagnet Book Confab on October 28–30, 2022, at 72 Warren St., Tribeca, New York.

The journalist’s life and career are chronicled in “Blind Journey: A Journalist’s Memoirs.” Jack Hawn’s job as a journalist is shown as something that happened to him rather than something he set out to do.

Jack never had any ambitions toward or involvement with journalism or journalistic writing. After nearly four years in the Army’s public relations offices, he returned to civilian life with a brand new infant daughter, a wife, ambition, optimism, confidence, but no job.

Author Jack Hawn writes with clear and sharp eyes about the early days of broadcast sports, the lives of journalists, and boxers, bringing to life a time when people were interested in reading about these things in the L.A. journalistic jungle.

More details about Jack Hawn and his biographical book, “Blind Journey: A Journalist’s Memoirs,” can be found on his website at Furthermore, a copy of this book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Born in 1930 in Kearney, Nebraska, at age eighteen, Jack enlisted in the Army and spent nearly four years assigned to public information offices. In civilian life, he found work as a copyboy at a Hollywood newspaper, was paid $5 to review plays and nightclub acts, and a year later filled a sports desk vacancy. Although a sports fan, he clearly was unqualified for the position and nearly replaced.

To help support a growing family, he earned extra income writing TV Westerns and dramas and radio scripts for sportscasters. Jack went on to cover major sports events and entertainment during his 21years at the Los Angeles Times.

Throughout his 43-year career, he dined with a young Cassius Clay, covered his rise to world-wide stardom as Muhammad Ali, boxing at the 1984 L.A. Olympics, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and numerous other sports and film celebrities until his retirement from the Times in 1991.
