THE PULITZER AT 100 tells the story of this prestigious prize through the riveting stories of the artists who have won it. Pulitzer prize winning journalists Carl Bernstein, Nick Kristof, Thomas Friedman, and David Remnick; authors Toni Morrison, Michael Chabon, Junot Díaz, Tony Kushner, and Ayad Akhtar; and musicians Wynton Marsalis, David Crosby, and John Adams, among others, share their experiences. Pulitzer prize winning works are read by Helen Mirren, Natalie Portman, Liev Schreiber, John Lithgow and Yara Shahidi.
Equally inspiring is the life of Pulitzer himself. Authors Theodore Glasser, James McGrath Morris, Roy Harris and others provide insight into the career of a man who was raised in a Jewish Hungarian home, came on his own to America not speaking English and rose to the highest ranks of journalism.
Mr. Morris, who is featured in the film, will be joining us at the screening. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book, “Pulitzer, A Life in Politics, Print and Power”.
