GET READY CHICAGO: 
This coming Thursday, June 4, the venerable Chicago Council on Global Affairs is hosting a special evening panel presentation with me and the prolific Professor Garry Wills, about the limits of reform in the Vatican under Pope Francis.  It starts at 5:30 at the Renaissance Blackstone Hotel and is followed by a book signing.  The public is welcome and can get more info and register at http://www.thechicagocouncil.org/event/pope-francis-and-vatican-legacy-and-limits-reform

Trisha Posner​ and I are looking forward to catching up with some Chicago-based friends and colleagues on our quick stop in the Windy City....

GOD'S BANKERS shows up in a lot of unlikely places for a book.  But it does seem to have a life of its own now, almost independent of its author and publisher.  Our ever creative friend Gabriel Dayan​ has evidently captured its first appearance :-)  Trisha Posner​, would you expect anything less of a fellow Brit?

“I interviewed Gerald Posner, whose latest book called God’s Bankers is about the somewhat sketchy past,” he explains. “These are not the Girl Scouts or the Boy Scouts here. They’re doing better now, but I don’t think we should be out there cheering, yea, the Vatican Bank, they made a lot of money last year.”

The Palm Beach Post reporting that the Vatican Bank had zeroed in a 147 'suspicious financial transactions' last year, a "sign that tough new anti-money laundering norms are taking hold at its scandal-marred bank."
Good evidence that those now running the finances of the Vatican are trying hard to avoid a repetition of the tales of corruption and scandal set forth in  "GOD'S BANKERS: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican​"

Big Miami welcome to colleague and friend, author/investigative reporter Jason Berry. I finally got his signature on my dog-eared copies of his seminal books 'Lead Us Not Into Temptation' and 'Render Unto Rome'. One great Cuban meal with Trisha Posner and Jason is now only a couple of days away from returning to Rome for some extensive reporting on new stories about Francis's Vatican.... — with Jason Berry.

The Guardian on the news that Pope Francis has not watched TV since 1990:

"If there’s a universal truth about people who don’t own a television, it’s that they’ll eventually tell you that they don’t own a television. Even Pope Francis is at it. He’s just told an Argentinian newspaper that he hasn’t watched a single television programme since 1990.
Clearly, making this admission was a huge mistake on his part. It has made him look smug and out of touch – like everyone who doesn’t watch TV. There are certain things that a pope can get away with. Being God’s representative on Earth who lives in a gilded palace within his own independent city-state is one of them. But not knowing how Breaking Bad ends? Unforgivable."
With Trisha Posner, who does in fact watch television....

Story
Introduction
I'm a health and fitness journalist and author. This is Not Your Mother’s Menopause (Villard, 2000), was my journey through menopause hormone free. My follow-up was No Hormones, No Fear (Villard, 2003).  I am a regular contributor for national magazines. My 2004 series in Salon on women, sex, aging, and fitness, won a wide web following. After a two-year stint as the “Health Watch” and “Cultural Chatter” columnist for Miami’s Ocean Drive magazine, I also wrote for wellness for The Miami Herald.

In addition to my health and fitness pieces, I've also written features from architectural controversies to profiles on everyone from eccentric Miami wine collectors, artist Romero Britto, business developers Jorge Perez, Miami's Boom and Bust Condo King and boutique hoteliers Ian Schrager and Andre Balazs, and even politically charged interviews with outspoken pundits like Bill Maher.

Before journalism, I was in fashion and music for twenty years, and at different times, managed boutiques in London, Barcelona, and New York, created my own menswear collection, ran the art department for a Swedish recording label, and modeled. During much of that period I also researched and developed ten investigative non-fiction books with my husband, Gerald, a New York Times bestselling author (www.posner.com).

In addition to my writing, I'm a mixed media artist, a career I launched in the mid-1970s in Ibiza. I recently exhibited in Miami. My latest phase is Pop Digital Art, the digital remastering of photographs and images into limited edition collections, using the highest quality commercial equipment, utilizing incredibly stable and vibrant inks, substrates, and matte coatings, to produce brilliantly colored fine art prints. Currently in a self-described “Neon Period,” my latest work highlights the vibrant colors of Miami, which is now home.
