THOMAS FRIEDMAN
Interviewed by Representative John Yarmuth

THANK YOU FOR BEING LATE
A FIELD GUIDE TO THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, WRITTEN BY ONE OF ITS MOST CELEBRATED OBSERVERS
(Farrar, Straus and Giroux)

In his most ambitious work to date, Thomas L. Friedman shows that we have entered an age of dizzying acceleration–and explains how to live in it. Due to an exponential increase in computing power, climbers atop Mount Everest enjoy excellent cell-phone service and self-driving cars are taking to the roads.

With vision, authority, and wit, Thank You for Being Late establishes a blueprint for how to think about our times.

Thomas L. Friedman has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize three times for his work with The New York Times, where he serves as the foreign affairs columnist. Read by everyone from small-business owners to President Obama, he is an international bestseller in hardcover.

Representative John Yarmuth represents Kentucky’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Now in his sixth term, Congressman Yarmuth serves as the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee.

5:00 PM - Carmichael's Book Sale - Wine & Cheese provided by Brown-Forman
