enator George Mitchell, an architect of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement for peace in Northern Ireland, US Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, and author of the Mitchell Report on performance enhancing drugs in baseball, launches his new memoir, The Negotiator.

Told with wit, frankness, and a style all his own, Senator Mitchell’s memoir reveals many insights into the art of negotiation. Mitchell looks back at his adventures in law and politics—including instrumental work on clean air and water legislation, the Iran-Contra hearings, and healthcare reform—as well as life after the Senate, from leading the successful Northern Ireland peace process, to serving as chairman of The Walt Disney Company, to heading investigations into the use of steroids in baseball and unethical activity surrounding the Olympic Games. Through it all, Senator Mitchell’s incredible stories—some hilarious, others tragic, all revealing—offer invaluable insights into critical moments in the last half-century of business, law, and politics, both domestic and international.

Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear Senator Mitchell, a central figure in the shaping Ireland’s current political landscape.

Introduction by GIH NYU Co-Founder / Board Chair Loretta Brennan Glucksman and writer Colum McCann (Transatlantic, Let the Great World Spin).
