Anderson Cooper’s resume is varied. He counts down to midnight every year on New Year’s Eve, he interviews adult film stars, and — of course — he’s everyone’s favorite silver fox. He is also the son of Gloria Vanderbilt, the New York-based heiress of skin-tight, waist-high designer denim fame. But instead of gallivanting around the world dancing on tables and driving drunk and crashing into things like some other privileged children, Cooper took a decidedly different route. He’s been working as a journalist since 1992, visiting more than 40 countries in the process, reporting often from the scene, and garnering numerous awards along the way. Cooper is also the the anchor of CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360°, and he’s written a couple of books, and the list goes on and makes everyone feel lazy and insufficient so we’ll spare you. Come see the man share the story of his life in person next week in San Rafael if possible — it’s bound to be an unforgettable night.
