St. Louis Jewish Book Festival Keynote Event – Ben Bernanke

When: Thu., Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2015

Bernanke makes his only appearance in St. Louis to discuss his new book, The Courage to Act, an in-depth look at the decision-making process in Washington during the worst financial crisis and economic slump in America since the Great Depression. In 2006, Ben S. Bernanke was appointed chair of the Federal Reserve, the unexpected apex of a personal journey from small-town South Carolina to prestigious academic appointments and finally public service in Washington’s halls of power. There would be no time to celebrate.

Price: $50
