Dan Conaway is a lifelong Memphian, fascinated and frustrated with his city, but still in love. A columnist since 2010, his distinguished advertising career has branded ribs in the Rendezvous and ducks in The Peabody, pandas in the zoo and Grizzlies in the NBA. Stories in Memphis tend to write themselves. He’s helped a few along. Two book collections of his columns have been published.

“While white men over 65 represent something in the neighborhood of 5% of our population, they’re engaged in a battle to hold their fierce grip on power and opinion. Sadly, tragically, they’re winning.”
