Author Jeff Hobbs on “The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace”

December 7, 2015

Tuesday at 7pm, Colorado College will host a conversation between authors Helen Thorpe and Jeff Hobbs. Helen Thorpe’s writing has appeared in the New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Slate, and elsewhere, and her books—Soldier Girls, and Just Like Us—have been widely praised by critics. Jeff Hobbs is the author of The Tourists: A Novel, and more recently, the New York Times bestseller, The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace. In advance of their upcoming talk, Thorpe interviewed Hobbs for KRCC about his book, which explores issues of race, class, and social inequality, through the life and untimely death of Hobbs’ good friend and college roommate.
