Rich Cohen Reading & Booksigning

20 Oct 2012

On Saturday, October 20, 7:30 pm at Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, New York Times bestselling author Rich Cohen will present and sign his new work, The Fish That Ate the Whale: The Life and Times of America's Banana King. Cohen's brilliant historical profile of Samuel Zemurray, hidden kingmaker and capitalist revolutionary, is driven by an indomitable will to succeed. Known as El Amigo, the Gringo, or simply Z, the Banana Man lived one of the great untold stories of the last hundred years. Cohen is the author of six previous books, including Israel is Real: The Obsessive Quest to Understand the Jewish Nation and Its History.

This event is free and open to the public.
