American Experiment Luncheon Forum

Peace, They Say

A History of the Nobel Peace Prize
The Most Famous and Controversial Prize in the World
Jay Nordlinger

Friday, April 20, 2012
12:00 PM to 1:30 PM 

Lunch will be served at Noon, the Forum will begin at 12:30 and end promptly at 1:30.
A Book Signing will follow.


Please join us as National Review’s Jay Nordlinger talks about his newest book, Peace, They Say: Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about morethan 100 years worth of Nobel Laureates, stretching all the way from the pacific Mother Teresa to the measurably less dovish Le Duc Tho and Yasser Arafat.

“Nordlinger’s “fascinating history of the Nobel Peace Prize,”Robert Conquest, author of The Great Terror has written, “is deeply researched and wittily rendered,” much like “a crowd ofcontradictory characters in a Shakespeare tragedy?” Or perhaps,Conquest adds, as in one of the Bard’s comedies. Either way, Peace, They Say is an unprecedented chronicling of both glory days and days of gore.

Jay Nordlinger is a senior editor at National Review where he writes about a wide range of subjects, as he also does for many other publications, as witness his celebrated 2007 collection, Here, There & Everywhere.
