Stephen Kurkjian is a renowned journalist and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who spent 38 years as a reporter and editor at the Boston Globe. He is also the recipient of more than 25 other regional and national reporting awards, including the 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award from the New England Society of Professional Journalists. Kurkjian will speak about his career in general, including the Gardner heist, which he is currently writing a book on. He will also have a Q&A with the audience.
“Throughout his distinguished career, Stephen
Kurkjian has had his fingers to the pulse of the most significant issues of our
time, both at home and abroad. The Auxiliary looks forward to hearing him
speak about his experiences as a journalist and especially about his coverage
of the still unsolved Gardner Museum heist, a topic on which he is considered
to be the foremost authority,” said Donna Smerlas, Mount Auburn Hospital
Auxiliary President and Watertown resident.
