Media Advisory: Carnegie Mellon Hosts Co-Author of
Professor Randy Pausch's Book, "The Last Lecture"
Event: Meet Wall Street Journal reporter Jeffrey Zaslow, whose column, "Moving On," catapulted Carnegie Mellon University Computer Science Professor Randy Pausch into an Internet phenomenon when he wrote about the terminally ill professor's "last lecture" on Sept. 18, 2007. Today (April 8), "The Last Lecture," a book that Zaslow, a 1980 graduate of Carnegie Mellon, co-wrote with Pausch based on that lecture was released by Hyperion Books. Take this opportunity to question Zaslow and Pausch, who will be available via speakerphone barring last minute medical issues, about these remarkable developments. Learn how the collaboration has changed both of their lives and helped to bring the issue of under-funded pancreatic cancer research, the fourth most common cancer and the one least susceptible to treatment, to the forefront of the nation's consciousness.
When: 10 a.m., Monday, April 14.
Where: Danforth Lounge, second floor, University Center on the Carnegie Mellon campus. Parking will be available in the university's East Campus Garage, beside the University Center. Signs will direct visitors to the Danforth Lounge.
