Alive Inks Deal for Rwanda President, Paul Kagame`s Bio

Rick and Debbie Christian sealed the publishing deal with Rwanda President, Paul Kagame January 21, 2006 at his Kigali home. The leader’s biography will be written by NY Times journalist Stephen Kinzer.

September 2006 — President Paul Kagame of Rwanda agreed to a biography deal with Alive President, Rick Christian, following breakfast in his home earlier this year. The meeting was arranged by mutual friends Peb Jackson and Dan Cooper. Rick subsequently closed negotiations with Eric Nelson of John Wiley & Sons in New York this month on behalf of acclaimed author and long-time New York Times veteran Stephen Kinzer. “I am very pleased Stephen Kinzer agreed to write the book,” Christian said. “He has established a world-class profile from working 20 plus years as a journalist and bureau chief with the New York Times. His non-fiction books, including his latest release, Overthrow, are acclaimed for their fast-paced narratives, vivid history, and exceptional accuracy. Kinzer, who is also a professor of journalism and international relations at Northwestern University in Chicago, spent much of the summer in Rwanda, researching for the book, which will be released in 2008.
