Online: Tamara Payne In Conversation with Professor Andrew Salomon (Durst Distinguished Lectures)

Thursday, October 21, 2021 6:00pm - 7:00pm ET Online


I'm sorry if you missed it, but this event already took place.

Tamara Payne served as the principal researcher on The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X, which won the Pulitzer Prize in Biography and the National Book Award for Nonfiction, was longlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction, and was named the best book of the year by the New York Times, The Washington Post, and many other publications. Les Payne, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who served as an editor and columnist at Newsday, worked on The Dead Are Arising for nearly thirty years. Tamara, his daughter, completed the book after he died of a heart attack in 2018.

The event is sponsored by the Purchase college and is free to the community.

As a small public college, Purchase is proud to introduce the Durst Distinguished Lectures—outstanding opportunities for students and local community members alike to interact with accomplished authors.
