BookExpo lands Greenspan

February 17, 2007|From the Associated Press

NEW YORK — The chairman is coming to BookExpo America.

Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve Board chairman and author of a widely anticipated memoir, will be the keynote speaker June 1 at the publishing industry's annual national convention, to be held in New York from June 1 to 3.

Greenspan, 80, reportedly received $8.5 million for his memoir, "The Age of Turbulence," scheduled to come out this fall from Penguin Press. After his talk at BookExpo, Greenspan will answer a few questions, from an interviewer he knows quite well -- his wife, NBC's Andrea Mitchell.

"We see this as a real coup," said Roger Bilheimer, BookExpo's special events director. "Sure, she's his wife, but she's a smart lady and she's been around the block.

"I certainly think this is an opportunity for a stimulating conversation."
