Sunday afternoon, April 23, at 3:00 at the Town Hall in Cornwall Village.
Roxana Robinson will give a talk titled “What are Women Doing in Politics?” Currently the president of the Authors Guild, Robinson’s work has been recognized by such diverse sources as the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S. Marine Corps Foundation which gave her the James Webb Award for Distinguished Fiction for her most recent book, Sparta. She teaches at Hunter College. The annual Dorsen lecture is made possible by a gift from Norman Dorsen, Stokes professor of law at New York University and a long-time Cornwall home-owner. He was president of the American Civil Liberties Union between 1976 and 1991.
