Talk and book signing -- The Fish That Ate The Whale: The Life and Times of America's Banana King

featuring Rich Cohen

Date: Thursday, November 29, 2012
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Building: Alumni House
Location: uptown campus

Rich Cohen's brilliant historcial profile, THE FISH THAT ATE THE WHALE, unveils Sam Zemurray as a hidden kingmaker and captialist revolutionary, 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.  Starting with nothing but a cart of freckled bananas, Zemurray built an empire of banana cowboys, mercenary soldiers and American statesmen.  From hustling on the docks of New Orleans to overthrowing Central American governments, from feuding with Huey Long to working with the Dulles brothers, Zemurray emerges as an unforgettable figure, connected to the birth of modern American diplomacy, public relations, business  - a monumental life that reads like a parable of the American dream.
