Registrants for the National League for Nursing's upcoming convention in Seattle can prepare for a singular experience: Awardwinning television journalist and best-selling author Linda Ellerbee promises to entertain conventiongoers with her renowned abilities as a no-nonsense, witty, and highlyskilled wordsmith - both on the screen and in print.
Ellerbee will set the pace as keynoter for NLN's 19th biennial convention, scheduled for June 11-15, 1989 at Seattle's brand-new Washington State Convention Center and planned around the theme, "Thriving in the '90s through quality and creativity."
At NBC News, Ellerbee spent 11 years covering the U.S. Congress, presidential campaigns, national political conventions, and other events. Her intelligent and creative "tell-it-like-it-is" style won her many fans and a reputation for quality, but often placed her at odds with the traditional thinking of many network executives. She anchored and wrote the awardwinning newsmagazine Weekend and NSC News Overnight, which was cited by the Columbia duPont Awards people as possibly "the best written and most intelligent news program ever."
To register for the convention, call NLN toll-free for information: 800-847-8480, or, in New York State, 800-442-4546.
