As part of the year-long celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Fulbright Program, former ASL Picador Professor Daniel Peña will moderate a special virtual Fulbright event, Roger Rosenblatt: The Writing Life, taking place on Friday, May 14, 2pm EST (8pm CEST).

This event will highlight the literary career of Roger Rosenblatt, writer, author, professor, Emmy Award winner, Peabody Award winner, and 1965 Fulbright U.S. Student to Ireland, and is moderated by Daniel Peña, a 2014 Fulbright U.S. Student to Mexico, Assistant Professor in the Department of English at the University of Houston- Downtown, and author of Bang: A Novel.

The event will feature a moderated discussion of Rosenblatt’s life, career, awards, and Fulbright experience.
