Superman is the first full-fledged biography not just of the Man of Steel, but of the visionary writers and artists, publishers and performers, who kept aloft the red-and-blue-clad icon through seven decades and counting. Larry Tye shows us how Superman — like few other mythical characters before or since — has evolved in a way that offers a Rorschach test of his changing times and our highest aspirations.
The following night on April 3, at 7:30pm, he discusses his new book at The St. Louis Jewish Community Center in Creve Coeur (2 Millstone Campus Drive, 63146)
Tickets for the presentation will be available at Star Clipper for a discounted price of $16! That gets you admittance to the presentation AND the book!
