Friday, June 17 at 12:00pm in Meeting Room A&B Isabel Vincent will talk about her life as an investigative reporter and her newest book, Dinner with Edward, which she researched and wrote, in part, right here in the library! Registration requested.

Isabel Vincent’s new book, Dinner with Edward, about an odd couple – a recently divorced reporter and a nonagenarian, sharing dinners and recipes for food – and life, has received warm acclaim. In a starred review Booklist said, “Delightfully combining the warm-heartedness of Tuesdays with Morrie with the sensual pleasure of Julie and Julia, this is a memoir to treasure.” Publishers Weekly wrote: “Food lovers will swoon from the first chapter . . . It is easy to fall deeply for Edward’s tender heart as Vincent learns how he has savored his life, and over time, begins to create a life that’s more inviting and full for herself. Readers will finish the book satisfied, yet wanting more.”

Vincent is an investigative reporter for the New York Post. Previously, she was a foreign correspondent based in Rio de Janeiro and before that she covered the conflicts that led to the war in Kosovo. Her work has appeared in magazines and newspapers all over the world, including the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, L’Officiel and Time. She is the author of four previous books: Gilded Lily: Lily Safra: The Making of One of the World’s Wealthiest Widows; Bodies and Souls: The Tragic Plight of Three Jewish Women Forced into Prostitution in the Americas; Hitler’s Silent Partners: Swiss Banks, Nazi Gold and the Pursuit of Justice; and See No Evil: The Strange Case of Christine Lamont and David Spencer.
