JUPITER, FL (January 29, 2010) - Florida Atlantic University’s Lifelong Learning Society will present a lecture by author Jeffrey Zaslow on Tuesday, February 2 at 2 p.m. The lecture will take place in the Lifelong Learning Society complex at FAU, 5353 Parkside Drive, Jupiter.
Zaslow’s lecture “ A Heartfelt and Humorous Look at Life’s Transitions” focuses on his bestselling book, The Last Lecture, co-authored with Dr. Randy Pausch. By showing footage of Pausch giving his last lecture at Carnegie Mellon and sharing lessons learned in his many hours writing this book with the professor, Zaslow brings insights into a story that has captivated people worldwide.
