Corey Kilgannon has been writing for The New York Times since 1994 when he was a copy boy on the paper. He has been a staff reporter for the Metro Desk since 2000. As a reporter, he searches for the compelling, quirky and interesting stories about New Yorkers from the 5 boroughs, writing features and his ‘Character Study’ column for the Sunday Metropolitan Section. His fascinating columns include an incisive profile of former police detective, Frank Serpico, who inspired the film, Serpico.
Mr. Kilgannon’s job is incredibly varied, meeting New Yorkers from all walks of life, distilling their lives and experiences into engaging and lively features. Recent stories he has written, that illustrate the diversity of his coverage, include: the teenage sweethearts who survived the Holocaust; the poignant ode to a milkman killed 60 years ago; a battle between two Crown Heights kosher pizzerias: a forgotten Irish painter’s Brooklyn Renaissance; a hipster cop; the 107 year old Bronx resident still toasting life; and a mom and pop store from Little Italy. During his presentation, Mr. Kilgannon will talk about his life as a reporter at the Times.
The Lectures start at 6:30 pm in The General Society Library, 20 West 44th Street, New York City. Reception to follow.
