An Evening with Anderson Cooper (In-person & Virtual)

Journalist and bestselling author Anderson Cooper chronicles the rise and fall of a legendary American dynasty — his mother’s family, the Vanderbilts. In “Vanderbilt: The Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty,” co-authored with historian Katherine Howe, Cooper traces the journey of his great-great-great-grandfather, “Commodore” Cornelius Vanderbilt who built shipping and railroad empires and became the richest man in America. Cooper’s unique insider’s viewpoint captures the family’s outsized influence and unfettered wealth, and a look at the modern day family who would have been unrecognizable to the tycoon who started it all.
