William O’Neil Lecture in Business Journalism: Diana Henriques, Financial Journalist and New York Times Best-selling Author
“From Black Monday to Bernie Madoff: Legends and Lies on Wall Street”

Award-winning financial journalist Diana Henriques will discuss the finance world’s hubris, romantic delusions, willful blindness and regulatory deficiencies in her talk, “From Black Monday to Bernie Madoff: Legends and Lies on Wall Street.” She is the author of A First-Class Catastrophe: The Road to Black Monday, the Worst Day in Wall Street History, a major new book about the 1987 stock market crash that was released in September 2017. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust, and starred as herself opposite Robert De Niro in the hit HBO movie based on the book. As a staff writer for The New York Times from 1989 to 2012 and as a contributing writer since then, she has largely specialized in investigative reporting on white-collar crime, market regulation and corporate governance.
