LEADING VOICES: Tracy Kidder | A Truck Full of Money: One Man’s Quest to Recover from Great Success

Fri, October 7, 2016 8:00 A.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: $35 General Admission

The “master of the nonfiction narrative” (The Baltimore Sun), Tracy Kidder is acclaimed for his unique “literary journalism” that emphasizes compelling narrative and personal voice in such bestselling books as The Soul of a New Machine, Among Schoolchildren, and Mountains Beyond Mountains—a biographical look at anthropologist and physician Paul Farmer’s fight against tuberculosis in the developing world. His many honors include the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction, the National Book Award for Nonfiction, and the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. In A Truck Full of Money, Kidder explores the inspiring story of Kayak.com founder Paul English and the ways new money is changing philanthropy and reshaping the world.
