Sarah Begley

Sarah Begley, TIME Magazine books editor, will present “Dear Reader . . . Connecting Audiences with Books That They’ll love” at the University of Bridgeport (UB) on Thursday, March 22, at 4:30pm. The discussion, followed by a question-and-answer session, will be held in room 107 in Mandeville Hall, located at 230 Park Avenue in Bridgeport.

Ms. Begley’s special appearance is part of Necessary Voices, the popular lecture series about arts and ideas produced by the University of Bridgeport English department.

The event is free and open to the public.

Ms. Begley is a staff reporter and the books editor at TIME. In addition to her popular and authoritative book reviews, she writes about TV, movies, art, and culture for the magazine. Previously, she wrote for The Daily Beast.

“This is a special treat for anyone who loves books and wants to know what to read next,” said Diane Krumrey, director of the Necessary Voices series and an associate professor of English. “She will discuss books and the art of sharing them through reviews—how she chooses books for her audience and how she frames her articles to try to pair the right books with the right readers.”

Ms. Begley graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English, French and Francophone Studies from Vassar College.
