Tickets(price does not include service charge)
601 Smithe Street
International bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Outliers and Blink, and host of the top-ranking podcast Revisionist History, visits Vancouver.
We’re thrilled to present Malcolm Gladwell in Conversation with Lisa Christiansen, discussing his must-read work, Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know.
How did Fidel Castro fool the CIA for a generation? Why did Neville Chamberlain think he could trust Adolf Hitler? Why are campus sexual assaults on the rise? Do television sitcoms teach us something about the way we relate to each other that isn’t true?
With these questions at the heart of a gripping intellectual adventure of history, psychology and even recent scandals, Gladwell will bring to light how bad we are at making sense of people we don’t know and the profound effect it has on our lives and the world. He’ll also explore just what the tools and strategies may be to solve this pressing issue.
