Malcolm Gladwell - Talking to Strangers—in conversation with Sam Sanders at GW Lisner Auditorium

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 7:00pm

NPR & POLITICS AND PROSE PRESENT
It's Been a Minute Live with Sam Sanders & Malcolm Gladwell

NPR and Politics and Prose are excited to welcome Malcolm Gladwell to George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium. Gladwell, host of the podcast Revisionist History and bestselling author of The Tipping PointBlink, and Outliers, will discuss his new book Talking to Strangers as part of a live taping for NPR’s It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders podcast. Each week, Sanders engages with journalists, actors, musicians, thought leaders, and listeners to gain the kind of understanding about news and popular culture that can only be reached through conversation.

In Talking to Strangers, Gladwell takes readers on an intellectual adventure through history, psychology, and scandals taken straight from the news. He revisits the deceptions of Bernie Madoff, the trial of Amanda Knox, the suicide of Sylvia Plath, the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State University, and the death of Sandra Bland—throwing our understanding of these and other stories into doubt. Because we don't know how to talk to strangers, Gladwell argues, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.
