Writing Biography in New York City Next Monday

I’m looking forward to my event next week at St. John’s University. I will be discussing the challenges of writing biography—especially four intertwined biographies of men who each lived rich and productive lives!—as well as the joys of living “with” such fascinating people for so many years. The event, on Monday, April 30 from 12:15-1:40, will be held on the campus of St. John’s University in Queens, New York, and is free and open to the public. Lunch will also be served. For more information, or to register, email CTL@stjohns.edu or call 718-990-1859.
