TRACY KIDDER at Town Hall
A writer we have known and supported since he first visited Elliott Bay with The Soul of a New Machine thirty-five years ago, Tracy Kidder, recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and numerous other honors for a body of work that includes House, Among Schoolchildren, Mountains Beyond Mountains, and Strength in What Remains, among other books, is here tonight with his newest, A Truck Full of Money (Random House). “The story of [an] entrepreneur’s remarkable life [and] the new American economy and the technological world that built it. More engrossing work from a gifted practitioner of narrative nonfiction.”—Kirkus Reviews. “A Truck Full of Money brings us into unknown spaces of the complex workings of the mind—of a brilliant software engineer, of this new decade, of the brutal/fast business of technology, of stunning privilege, and of one man’s efforts to put his fortune to humane use.”—Adrian Nicole LeBlanc. Admission is $32 (plus ticket tax/fee), which includes a copy of A Truck Full of Money. Click here, or the link below for tickets. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
