    Superman: The High-Flying History of America's Most Enduring Hero

    Bestselling author Larry Tye comes to Arlington Community Ed's Conversations series to discuss his 2012 book Superman: The High-Flying History of America's Most Enduring Hero. It is the first full-fledged history not just of the Man of Steel, but the creators, designers, owners and performers who kept aloft the red-and-blue clad icon through seven decades and counting -- a star in every medium from comic books and comic strips to radio, TV and film. Join the conversation as Tye shares stories about savvy publishers and visionary writers and artists of comics' Golden Age, the actors who brought Superman to life on screen, and Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and their lifelong struggle for recognition and rewards rightly due the architects of a genuine cultural phenomenon.
