Reading, PA –New York Times bestselling biographer and Reading native, Bob Spitz ’71, will return to Albright College on Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m., to discuss his celebrated new biography on Ronald Reagan. The free event in Albright’s Merner-Pfeiffer-Klein Memorial Chapel will be open to the public. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and a book signing will follow a question and answer session.

Based on hundreds of reviews and previously unavailable documents, “Reagan: An American Journey,” tells the story of America’s 40th president, spanning from his humble beginnings to his career as an actor and president. Spitz will discuss what he learned about the life of Ronald Reagan through years of biographical research. 

After managing Bruce Springsteen and Elton John, Albright College alumnus Bob Spitz ’71 turned to the pen and became an award-winning author of several New York Times bestselling biographies, including “Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child and “The Beatles: The Biography.” He wrote six other nonfiction books, a screenplay, and continually writes for magazines and newspapers such as The New York Times Magazine and The Washington Post.

Currently, Spitz is working on a biography of the English rock band Led Zeppelin. From A (Albright) to Z (Zeppelin), Spitz’s reinvention continues.
