Heather Halberstadt

Departures

 Departures' editor Heather Halberstadt will send you places.

Departures' editor Heather Halberstadt will send you places.

Heather Halberstadt is features director for Departures, the travel and lifestyle publication for American Express platinum and black card holders. Heather was senior editor at WSJ and before that, was at Vanity Fair, where she edited the New Establishment list. We'll talk about writing for all those vaunted publications as well as what it takes to travel in style. We spent time together recently in Iceland flying around in helicopters and swimming in the cracks around volcanoes, so maybe we'll talk about that, too.

David Ritz
Biographer, music legend

 David Ritz will not let you procrastinate on Facebook, thank you very much.

David Ritz will not let you procrastinate on Facebook, thank you very much.

David Ritz is the golden god of music biographers. He's written more than 50 books with the greatest of greats: Ray Charles! Aretha! Don Rickles! Willie Nelson! He tells an incredible story about why he's credited as co-writer on Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing. We'll talk about writing, interviews, staying calm under pressure and much more. He has a Grammy, he's a novelist and he rocked the tattoo sleeve before your hipster barista was even born.
