New Canaan library next month for its popular, annual Conversations with Business Leaders lecture series will host one of the most prominent and influential business journalists of our time. Carol Loomis, the longest-tenured employee in the history of Fortune magazine, retiring last summer after more than 60 years with the company, will speak May 31 at the library. The free event will be held at 4 p.m. and registration is required, here. Organizers say Loomis, in interviewing many modern business leaders in the course of her career, likely has had more “Conversations with Business Leaders” herself than any other journalist, forging a unique perspective on the economy by recording their challenges and successes. We had an opportunity ahead of the talk to put some questions to Loomis.
