There are very few writers who went on a book tour - expecting to be done in 3 months - and 2 years later are still in high demand by TV and radio talk shows, universities, high level think tanks, and festivals. Even the Cornona Virus did not slow him down and on May 19, 2020, Anand Giridharadas was interviewed, from his home, for the International Festival of Arts & Ideas in New Haven, Connecticut.

In his book, Giridharadas asked hard questions about corporate philanthropy: Why, for example, should our gravest problems be solved by the unelected upper crust instead of the public institutions that the rich erode by lobbying and dodging taxes?

Elizabeth Nearing is the curator of ideas for the the International Festival of Arts & Ideas. The interviewer is John Dankosky.
