Malcolm Gladwell: Fall Leadership Breakfast
Best-Selling Author Malcolm Gladwell to Speak on New Book ‘Talking to Strangers’.
Fresh on the heels of a new book release, “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know,” best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell will bring his unique perspective and thought-provoking insights to Belmont University this fall.
Named one of the 100 most influential people by Time magazine and one of Foreign Policy’s top 100 Global Thinkers, Gladwell is a staff writer at The New Yorker and hosts the podcasts Revisionist History and Broken Record. His first new book in six years, “Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know” (Little, Brown; September 10, 2019) offers an incisive and powerful examination of our interactions with strangers—and why they often go so terribly wrong. In this classically Gladwellian intellectual adventure, he starts by asking a question: “What happens when we have to deal with the unfamiliar?”
