Before joining The Times, Ms. Collins was a columnist at New York Newsday and the New York Daily News, and a reporter for United Press International. Her first jobs in journalism were in Connecticut, where she founded the Connecticut State News Bureau, which provided coverage of the state capitol and Connecticut politics. When she sold it in 1977, the CSNB was the largest news service of its kind in the country, with more than 30 weekly and daily newspaper chains.
Collins will be on hand to autograph her book, “When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present,” as well as the 50th anniversary edition of Betty Friedan’s “The Feminine Mystique,” for which Collins wrote the new introduction.
