Anderson Cooper – Astors
The number one NYT bestselling authors of Vanderbilt return with another riveting history!
Virtual Author Event
* Thursday, September 21, 5:00 pm
The number one New York Times bestselling authors of Vanderbilt return with another riveting history of a legendary American family, the Astors, and how they built and lavished their fortune.
The story of the Astors is a quintessentially American story—of ambition, invention, destruction, and reinvention.
From 1783, when German immigrant John Jacob Astor first arrived in the United States, until 2009, when Brooke Astor’s son, Anthony Marshall, was convicted of defrauding his elderly mother, the Astor name occupied a unique place in American society.
Anderson Cooper is an Anchor at CNN and a correspondent for CBS’ 60 Minutes.
Cooper has won 20 Emmys and numerous other major journalism awards. He is also the author of three number one New York Times bestsellers, The Rainbow Comes and Goes, Dispatches From The Edge, and Vanderbilt (co-authored by Katherine Howe).
He lives in New York with his two sons.
Katherine Howe is a novelist and historian of America. She is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and The House of Velvet and Glass and the young adult novels Conversion and The Appearance of Annie van Sinderen, and her next novel, A True Account, will be out in November 2023.
She was also the editor of The Penguin Book of Witches and The Penguin Book of Pirates.
She lives with her family in New England.
