Join your fellow alumni, family and friends for "An Evening with Dick Lehr", COM professor and co-author of Whitey: The Life of America's Most Notorious Mob Boss (Crown Publishers: February 19, 2013), and New York Times Bestseller, Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, the FBI, and a Devil's Deal. Professor Lehr will guide guests through the life of infamous mobster Whitey Bulger, his process of researching and writing the trilogy of Bulger books, and the current process of turning these stories into film. Just shy of the two-year anniversary of Bulger's capture, and months away from the start of his scheduled trial, guests will no doubt enjoy this fascinating discussion. DICK LEHR is a professor of journalism at Boston University and a former reporter at The Boston Globe, where he won numerous awards and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Investigative Reporting. He is the co-author of the Edgar Award–winning Black Mass and the Edgar Award finalist Judgment Ridge (with Mitchell Zuckoff). His most recent book, The Fence, was an Edgar Award finalist and Boston Globe bestseller.
