“Person Place Thing” Recording with Randy Cohen and Elaine Pagels

Monday, March 18, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Randy Cohen interviews author and Princeton University Professor of Religion Elaine Pagels in this live recording of his public radio program, “Person Place Thing,” during which guests are asked to speak about a person, a place and a thing they find meaningful rather than about themselves.

 

Elaine Pagels joined the Princeton faculty in 1982, shortly after receiving a MacArthur Fellowship. Her most recent books include the New York Times best-selling “Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas” and “Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation” and “Why Religion: A Personal Story,” published last fall.

Randy Cohen won multiple Emmy awards as a writer for “Late Night with David Letterman” and for 12 years wrote “The Ethicist” column for The New York Times Magazine.
