Note: This event is now SOLD OUT.
We hope you will join us for an Evening Conversation with best-selling author and New York Times columnist, David Brooks, on his newly-released book The Road to Character.
In this Evening Conversation, David Brooks will examine the corrosions to character in our achievement-based culture, which rewards self-promotion over service and crowds out introspection with fast and shallow communication. He'll also explore the the true meaning of fulfillment, and why it is how we want to be remembered, rather than what is on our resumes, that truly matters
Brooks is an op-ed columnist for the New York Times, teaches at Yale University, and appears regularly on PBS NewsHour, NPR's All Things Considered, and NBC's Meet The Press. He is author of Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There; On Paradise Drive: How We Live Now (And Always Have) in the Future Tense; and The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement.
Responding to Brooks will be nationally syndicated columnist Michael Gerson, who has served as an Assistant to President George W. Bush for Policy and Strategic Planning, as well as Director of Presidential Speechwriting. He is also Senior Advisor at ONE, a bipartisan organization dedicating to ending poverty and preventable disease. Gerson's recent books include Heroic Conservatism and City of Man.
