Francis Conversations with Writers Series / Jeff Hobbs "The Short & Tragic Life Of Robert Peace"

  • Branford College/Common Room 74 High Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)
Robert Peace came to Yale from Newark, had a brilliant undergraduate career, and was murdered at age thirty during a drug deal. Hobbs was his roommate at Yale. He has written an intimate account of Peace’s life and death in a book reviewers have called “haunting,” “heartbreaking,” “devastating,” and “necessary.” The event will be introduced by Anne Fadiman, Yale’s Francis Writer in Residence.
