08.04.2009 - J.R. Moehringer

J.R. Moehringer (U.S.A.) is a journalist and winner of the 2000 Pulitzer Prize. In 2005 his autobiographical novel Tender Bar was published and subsequently became a highly praised bestseller. Moehringer grew up in the local bar under the watchful eye of a number of surrogate fathers in the blatant absence of his own. This memoir reads as a coming of age novel which recounts the first beer, learning how to be cool, learning that you don’t die of a broken heart and that dreams can come true if you really fight for them. Moehringer will be interviewed by writer and journalist Arjan Visser.
