In conjunction with the upcoming Kentucky Author Forum appearance of Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz on April 13, which will focus on Mr. Stiglitz’ most recent publication, The Euro: How a Common Currency Threatens the Future of Europe, we are pleased to be able to provide an additional opportunity to hear a recognized expert on investigative journalism around the globe: Anya Schiffrin.
Ms. Schiffrin, who will accompany her husband Joseph Stiglitz, is director of the Technology, Media, and Communications specialization at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs.
Given the relevance of this timely subject, we are attempting to ascertain the level of interest, with special focus on those of you who often attend the Author Forums. Your response to this email will allow us to better gauge the size of an appropriate venue for this presentation. Seating will not be reserved, but will be limited.
We most appreciate your timely response: if you would or would not be able to attend. And yes, if you wish to include other specific friends who may not be on this particular list, please indicate that number. We would like to accommodate as many interested Forum followers as possible!
If you haven’t gotten your ticket to the Stiglitz event, we suggest you hurry, as we are almost sold out. Remember that we always attempt to provide an “overflow” viewing room, if the numbers demand it.
With best wishes,
