BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The golden age of pulp fiction -- the popular, cheap, sleazy, sensational novels that played a role in American pop culture -- will be the topic of the University at Buffalo's Senior Alumni Luncheon to be held at noon on March 1 in the Center for Tomorrow on the UB North Campus.

The speakers will be UB alumnus George L. Kelley, a faculty member at Erie Community College who in 1994 donated his collection of 25,000 pulp-fiction titles to the UB Libraries, and Judith Adams-Volpe, director of UB's Lockwood Memorial Library.

The luncheon programs are designed for UB senior alumni and their guests. Seniors in the community also may attend on a space-available basis.

Deadline for reservations is Feb. 27.

Cost is $15 per person. Call 829-2608 for reservations and information.

Independent Health is a corporate sponsor of the Senior Alumni Luncheon Series, which is presented by UB's Office of Alumni Relations.
