Venue: Sydney Goldstein Theater

** NEW DATE: October 13 [this event was originally scheduled for October 12]

Since the publication of his first book The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell has garnered influence and fame through his fascinating analyses of our world. The New York Times Book Review wrote that “in the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today.” A Guggenheim fellow, and a finalist for both the National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle award, Gladwell’s books reveal his endless interests and insights, from the influence of our unconscious on our decisions, to what lies behind the rise and fall of everything from crime to epidemics. Gladwell’s writings made him a New York Times bestseller for five books, and created the term “Gladwellian perspective” to describe the numerous authors, and people, who are influenced by Gladwell. Further, at the age of 57, he could run a 5:15 minute mile. In the fall of 2024, Gladwell returns to the ideas of his debut book, and his following rapid rise to fame, in Revenge of the Tipping Point. With two decades of experience as an author, public figure, and widely known thinker, Gladwell brings a new and intimate eye to his classic text.

A limited number of tickets include a copy of Gladwell’s new book, Revenge of the Tipping Point.
