ECL 225 Keynote Lecture: The Thomas Wolfe Lecture with Frank Bruni

October 28, 2021
6:00 pm - 7:15 pm


Over a long, distinguished, and varied career, Frank Bruni has written for the Daily Tar Heel to the New York Times about seemingly all things: food, war, movies, George Bush, New York City, Congress, religion, and, intimately, about his own life.

A Morehead Scholar at Carolina, Bruni graduated Phi Beta Kappa in 1986, with a B.A. in English. “UNC,” he writes, “significantly expanded my world, took me out of my comfort zone in the best possible way, and taught me the limits of any one person’s experiences and the cinched parameters of any one perspective. That was an invaluable gift not only in terms of my subsequent journalism career and writing. That was an invaluable gift in terms of my humanity.”
