Darien Library Fall Author Series Presents


Author of Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers

Thursday, September 22 at 7 p.m.

Jared Dillian is the founder of the subscription-based, daily financial market report The Daily Dirtnap. He was a trader for Lehman Brothers from 2001 to 2008, specializing in index arbitrage and ETF trading and he had a great story to tell.

Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers takes readers behind the scenes at Lehman Brothers, exposing its insane and often hilarious corporate culture. Jared Dillian (pictured below, right) gives a colorful account of the final years of Lehman Brothers, from 9/11 at their Ground Zero offices through the firm’s bankruptcy, including vivid portraits of trading-floor culture, the financial meltdown, and the company’s ultimate collapse – all while Dillian fought his own personal battle with mental illness.

A book signing and reception will follow the presentation.
