Yesterday's Oregonian featured a book review of Storycraft by Jack Hart.  Hart served as a writing coach at the Oregonian for about twenty years, and his work helped make it possible for The Oregonian to win a Pulitzer for a story about how potatoes in the Northwest end up as french fries in a MacDonald's in Indonesia.

Hart maintains that despite the drastic changes taking place in the news industry, good storytelling is important for all types of media.  His book is available through Mount Angel's local public library and through Powell's Books in Portland.
