Book Club: October 9th
Book Club to discuss Black Edge: Inside Information, Dirty Money, and the Quest to Bring Down the Most Wanted Man on Wall Street
For October's Book Club, the host has selected this New York Time's bestseller by .
The story of the billionaire trader Steven A. Cohen, the rise and fall of his hedge fund, SAC Capital, and the largest insider trading investigation in history-for readers of The Big Short, Den of Thieves, and Dark Money.
The rise over the last two decades of a powerful new class of billionaire financiers marks a singular shift in the American economic and political landscape. Their vast reserves of concentrated wealth have allowed a small group of big winners to write their own rules of capitalism and public policy. How did we get here? Through meticulous reporting and powerful storytelling, New Yorker staff writer Sheelah Kolhatkar shows how Steve Cohen became one of the richest and most influential figures in finance-and what happened when the Justice Department put him in its crosshairs.
The local Harvard Club book club, which has been in existence for ten years, normally meets on the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for dinner and to discuss a wide-ranging selection of books -- fiction, poetry, biography, history, etc. They always enjoy having other interested people attend and participate.
The Book Club will meet next at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, October 9th @ Piattis at the Pavillions Shopping Center. Please contact Sadia Niazi for more information and to RSVP.
