Author John D. Kuhns Speaks at I-House

John D. Kuhns, author of China Fortunes: A Tale of Business in the New World, will be at International House on Thursday, April 5 at 5:15 p.m.

China Fortunes is the fictional story of the opportunities that accompanied the opening of China to Western investors. The novel is based on Kuhns’s twenty-five years of experience in China as a financier and industrialist.

Kuhns founded the Catalyst Energy Corporation in 1984 and was the first American to acquire commercial hydroelectric generating equipment from China. He powered the company to its successful IPO and listing on the New York Stock Exchange and followed with four more companies. He serves as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for China’s largest owner of small hydroelectric projects.

Kuhns received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Chicago in 1975. He was also the art and culture critic for the Chicago Maroon.

A reception will follow the event. For more information on Kuhns and his book click here.
