An Evening With Tom Brokaw

Wednesday, November 18

Chapman (Bldg. 3, 2nd Floor)
Tickets $15

Tom Brokaw served as anchor of NBC Nightly News from 1982 to 2004. During his career, he covered Watergate, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and 9/11. Brokaw has won every major award in broadcast journalism, including two DuPonts, three Peabody Awards, and several Emmys, including one for lifetime achievement. He also authored the best-selling book, The Greatest Generation. Brokaw had, by any measure, led a fortunate life—until he received the diagnosis that he had contracted a form of blood cancer. In A Lucky Life Interrupted: A Memoir of Hope (Random House; $27.00), Brokaw takes readers through all the seasons and stages of his illness as he pauses to look back on some of the important moments in his career. Kirkus Reviews calls A Lucky Life, “Wryly good-natured . . . a wise and oddly comforting look at the toughest news of all.”
