June 3, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Lerner Hall, 2920 Broadway, New York, NY 10027 Roone Arledge Cinema

Join CNN reporter Chloe Melas as she discusses the New York Times best-selling book Luck of the Draw. With a foreword by Melas, the book is the personal memoir that her grandfather, WWII Air Force veteran Frank Murphy, wrote for his family. For his service, Murphy received a Purple Heart, an Air Medal, and a Prisoner of War Medal. This true story of an American hero helped inspire the upcoming Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks TV Series Masters of the Air. Melas will be joined in conversation with Sandy Alderson, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and former president of the New York Mets.
