The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School is thrilled to host NPR’s Nancy Solomon on Thursday, April 27th at The Woodland. Solomon will talk about her true-crime podcast, Dead End: A New Jersey Political Murder Mystery, and will discuss how a political reporter came to make a true crime podcast, how she made it and what makes a podcast successful.

After the talk, SOMAS will present Solomon with the Gus & Thelma Sickles Award for Lifelong Learning. Thelma Sickles served on the SOMAS Board for over 40 years. Upon her retirement the Trustees created The Thelma and Gus Sickles Lifetime Learning Award to recognize someone either within our organization or the local community whose contribution to lifelong learning has been especially notable.

Solomon moved to New Jersey in 2001 and has been covering the state ever since. She has produced more than a hundred stories for NPR and was a 2008-09 Spencer Fellow in Education Reporting at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. In 2014 she won a Peabody Award for “Chris Christie, White House Ambitions and the Abuse of Power.” She lives in South Orange, NJ.

The event will be followed by a wine-and-dessert reception. Thursday, April 27, 7-9pm, The Woodland. Get your tickets here.
