Tuesday, May 24th
CUNY J-School - 219 W 40 Street (7th & 8th)
7:30pm - 9:00pm Program
Security consultant Frank Abagnale
will talk about his youthful adventures as an international con man and gadfly whose memoir, "Catch Me If You Can"
, inspired the Steven Spielberg
movie starring Leonard DiCaprio
as Abagnale. The memoir was also the basis for a Tony Award-winning Broadway show of the same name.
The law eventually caught up to Abagnale who served time. But in a twist, the FBI hired Frank
as a consultant to help with investigations involving fraud, counterfeiting, theft and identity crimes. Abagnale remains a consultant to government and to private clients who are victims of arcane thievery.
Come hear from Frank Abagnale about his "made for Hollywood" true-life adventures in what's sure to be a fascinating presentation and Q&A moderated by Steve Scott
, Press Club president and WCBS Newsradio 880 anchorman.
See Frank in a 1977 edition of "To Tell The Truth"
. (Runs 13:45).
for New York Press Club members and CUNY J-School students, faculty and alums. RSVP Required
