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), 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.” Sponsored by The Buoniconti Fund and NBC6. Ticket Required – $15.
