Mr. Sorkin is an anchor of the signature CNBC morning program, Squawk Box, and the Editor of Deal Book, a news site he founded published by The New York Times.
He is also the author of the bestselling book, "Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System—and Themselves," which chronicled the events of the 2008 financial crisis.

Mr. Sorkin is a graduate of Scarsdale High School and Cornell University.
“We are thrilled to welcome noted author, journalist and former Westchester resident Andrew Ross Sorkin to our luncheon this year,” said Annette Cappucci, President of the White Plains Hospital Auxiliary. “His contributions to the public’s understanding of the financial industry have made him a highly sought-after speaker, and we anticipate one of our most compelling luncheon presentations to date.”
All proceeds from the luncheon and raffle ticket sales will go directly to support White Plains Hospital.
