Wisconsin Book Festival Presents Christopher Leonard for Kochland

Friday, Sep 13, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Just as Steve Coll told the story of globalization through ExxonMobil and Andrew Ross Sorkin told the story of Wall Street excess through Too Big to Fail, Christopher Leonard’s Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America uses the extraordinary account of how one of the biggest private companies in the world grew to be that big to tell the story of modern corporate America.

Christopher Leonard is a business reporter whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and Bloomberg Businessweek. He is the author of The Meat Racket and Kochland, which won the J. Anthony Lukas Work-in-Progress Award. He will autograph books after the reading.
