Superman: The High-Flying History of America's Most Enduring Hero, March 16, 2014

Author Larry Tye

Sunday, March 16, 2014, 2:00 p.m.
Community Room, Needham Free Public Library
1139 Highland Avenue, Needham, MA

Free and open to the public

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library

Author Larry Tye covers the writers, artists, publishers, and performers who created and developed a champion born in a mythical world to triumph over the challenges of our world. For seventy-six years, Superman has assured successive generations that justice will prevail and wrongdoing will be thwarted. Is it surprising that the story took hold in the imagination of a victim of bullying?

Larry Tye is the author of the New York Times best-seller Satchel, as well as The Father of Spin, Home Lands, and Rising from the Rails, and co-author, with Kitty Dukakis, of Shock.

Fans of all ages are invited to listen to the presentation, and join in celebration of Superman's seventy-sixth birthday, complete with a birthday cake and balloons.
