TIMELESS: Love, Morgenthau, and Me

Presented by The Jewish Week.

The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for reporting, Lucinda Franks is a former staff writer for the New York Times and regular contributor to The New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine and The Atlantic. In her second memoir, she reveals private details about her marriage to New York’s leading prosecutor and the second longest serving district attorney in U.S. history, Robert Morgenthau. Despite a very well known 30-year age difference, Franks paints an enduring portrait of a balanced marriage and divulges many well-kept secrets about New York City’s most famous criminal cases.

Dan Rather will lead a dialogue with Lucinda Franks and Robert Morgenthau, both longtime members of Temple Emanu-El, about their lives in the glittering inner circle of Manhattan’s aristocratic Jewish elite. Rather is a notable Peabody Award–winning journalist and was the anchor of the CBS Evening News for 24 years.
