Ron Cohen discusses his book Of Course You Can Have Ice Cream for Breakfast! A Journalist’s Uncommon Memoir Fri 8/11, 6pm: Ron Cohen discusses his book Of Course You Can Have Ice Cream for Breakfast! A Journalist’s Uncommon Memoir As Managing Editor of United Press International and Executive Editor of Gannett News Service during a 40-year-journalism career, Ron Cohen has been directly responsible for instantly bringing the top headlines every day to hundreds of millions of readers, viewers and listeners in every corner of the globe. Now, shifting gears a bit, Cohen has written “Of Course You Can Have Ice Cream for Breakfast! A Journalist’s Uncommon Memoir.” It is sweet, humorous, quirky, serious — a sort of written/oral history of his 80 years on Planet Earth. With this collection of stories, Ron tells you about the fascinating characters he has encountered along his journey, as well about his rich North Jersey Italian-Jewish heritage dating back to the early 20th Century when mixed marriages were rare — and often frowned upon. The stories aim at his four young grandkids — whom he cannot and simply will not deny “Ice Cream for Breakfast” — in hopes they will get to better know (and remember) a grandfather who is geographically distant if emotionally close. But it also is for the 70 million grandparents in America and for “kids of all ages” looking for a grin, a sigh, a belly-laugh — even an occasional throat lump. Ron Cohen, an award-winning journalist for more than 40 years, directed coverage of every major news event from Watergate through 9/11 for United Press International and Gannett News Service. His previous book, “Down to the Wire: UPI’s Fight for Survival,” won numerous awards, including Business Week magazine’s Best Business Book of the Year (1990), and the coveted Gold Medal for Journalism History from the Society of Professional Journalists. Cohen holds journalism degrees from the University of Illinois and Columbia University, and is a member of the Illini Media Hall of Fame. He lives with his wife, Jill, in Potomac, MD.
