As the Man of Steel turns 75, join us for a wide-ranging Conversation about the character, his
creators, designers, owners and performers who kept aloft the red-and-blue-clad icon through
seven decades and counting. Superman, written by Larry Tye, tells the story of the savvy
publishers and visionary writers and artists of comics’ Golden Age who ushered Superman
through changing eras and evolving incarnations; and the actors—including George Reeves and
Christopher Reeve—who brought Superman to life on screen, only to succumb themselves to all-
to-human tragedy. It is also the poignant and compelling story of Superman’s creators Jerry
Siegel and Joe Shuster and their lifelong struggle for recognition and rewards rightly due to the
architects of a genuine cultural phenomenon. Larry Tye is a prize-winning journalist, author of the
New York Times bestseller Satchel as well as The Father of Spin, Home Lands, and Rising from
the Rails, and co-author, with Kitty Dukakis, of Shock. He is currently writing a biography of
Robert F. Kennedy.This Conversation is moderated by Teresa Hanafin, journalist and Director of
Engagement & Social Media for Boston.com, and co-sponsored by the Arlington Advocate and
