TV writer to lead discussion

Television writer, essayist and prose experimentalist Rodney Rothman will visit campus on Monday, Sept. 17 to give a reading from his work at 7:30 p.m. in the library's Sanford Room.

His recent memoir, “Early Bird: A Memoir of Premature Retirement,” tells of his “retirement” (for six months) at the age of 28 to an assisted living facility in Boca Raton, Fla.

Rothman, now living in Los Angeles, is a former head writer for the Late Show with David Letterman and was a writer and supervising producer for the television show Undeclared. His writing has appeared in the The New York Times, and its Magazine, Best American Nonrequired Reading, The New Yorker, McSweeney's Quarterly and Men's Journal.

His visit, sponsored by Writers Reading and the Faculty Speaker's Fund, is free and open to the public.
