    NORTHFIELD — New York Times columnist and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Thomas Friedman will speak at Norwich University as part of the school’s Todd Lecture Series.

    The presentation will be Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Plumley Armory.

    Friedman is the author of five best-sellers and will discuss the book he recently co-wrote with Michael Mandelbaum titled “That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back.”

    According to a news release from the school, the book theorizes that Americans need to study harder, save more, spend less, invest wisely and get back to the formula that made the country successful.

    Friedman will analyze the four major challenges we face as a country: globalization, the revolution in information technology, chronic deficits, and our pattern of energy consumption. He will also spell out what we need to do now to preserve American power in the world.
