James McGrath Morris. Discusses and signs ‘Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power,’ his well-received biography of Joseph Pulitzer. Before William Randolph Hearst surpassed him, Pulitzer was America’s leading press baron and his New York World the country’s most important newspaper. Then poor health, blindness, a growing list of powerful enemies and a general unpleasantness as a person forced him to seek seclusion. Today, Hearst, thanks in no small measure to Orson Welles’ ‘Citizen Kane,’ gets all the muckraking glory in our cultural memory; Pulitzer, save for the coveted prize that bears his name, is largely forgotten. 7 p.m. Free.
