Rushdie to Lecture at St. Francis

World renowned novelist Salman Rushdie will lecture in Founders’ Hall of St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, on Monday, March 9 at 12:30 P.M. No topic for his lecture, which is part of the College’s Thomas J. Volpe Lecture Series, has been announced. Rushdie, a native of Mumbai, India, is the author of several award-winning novels, including: Midnight’s Children, which won Britain’s prestigious Booker Award and was later honored as the best book to win that award in the forty years of its history; The Satanic Verses, which led the late Ayatollah Khomeni of Iran to issue a fatwa calling for Rushdie’s death (it was rescinded in 1998); and, most recently, The Enchantress of Florence.
The lecture is open to the public and free. If you plan to attend, please RSVP or call 718-489-5214 or 646-369-8988.
