Author Event - Tracy Kidder, "A Truck Full of Money"

Date: 
10/5/16, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Mountains Beyond Mountains," Tracy Kidder shares the inspiring story of Kayak.com founder Paul English. Growing up in working-class Boston, English discovered a medium for his talents the first time he saw a computer. With a gift for building creative teams of people, English made a fortune, only to give it away. "What else would you do with it?" he asked. Consummate storyteller Tracy Kidder casts a fresh eye on the way new ideas and new money are reshaping our culture. "A Truck Full of Money" is a mesmerizing portrait of an irresistibly endearing man who is as original and unpredictable as America itself.
