Presented by NYU Journalism and The Center for the Study of Transformative Lives, and moderated by legendary journalist and NYU Distinguished Writer in Residence, Pete Hamill.
Join us for a public conversation held at 20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor Commons on “writing death.” On the panel will be Sam Roberts of The New York Times, who writes many of the obituaries for that newspaper as well as book reviews, and also hosts a weekly TV show on New York 1. At the same table will be NYU Journalism Professor Katie Roiphe whose acclaimed study of death, The Violet Hour: Great Writers at the End, has much to teach about the human condition. She takes us through the final hours of Susan Sontag, Sigmund Freud, John Updike, Dylan Thomas, Maurice Sendak, and James Salter.Buy tickets/get more info now
