Event Details

Ben Tarnoff, author of the riveting and insightful new non-fiction narrative Moneymakers: The Wicked Lives and Surprising Adventures of Three Notorious Counterfeiters is in the Granny Smith Room. Please join us in welcoming the author.

In Moneymakers, Tarnoff chronicles the lives of three colorful counterfeiters who flourished in early America, shedding fresh light on the country’s financial coming of age. The speculative ethos that pervades Wall Street today, Tarnoff suggests, has its origins in the craft of counterfeiters who first took advantage of a turbulent American economy.

Ben Tarnoff has worked for Lapham’s Quarterly and his writing has appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle. Don’t miss the opportunity to find out more about the stories found in Moneymakers and his process of writing it.
