An Evening w/ Walter Isaacson - 5/20

5/03/2012 08:00:00 PM
Ok so this one is a bit more expensive than most events that I post about (mostly because if you're like me, you can't afford them).  But given that everyone is in love with Apple and that company now has enough money to buy all the European countries that need bailing out and convert them all into humongous Apple stores, I figured some of you folks might be interested in this.

Besides, I just picked up a copy of the Steve Jobs biography because I was told it's a great read.  You can get a copy (here).  

The Boston Book Festival holds a very special fundraising event on Sunday, May 20 at 5:30 p.m. at the spectacular MIT Media Lab (75 Amherst St., Cambridge, Mass.). An Evening With Walter Isaacson will feature a cocktail reception, a presentation, and dinner with the Steve Jobs biographer. Tickets are $400 per person for the entire evening, or $75 per person for just the cocktail reception and presentation.

Walter Isaacson is the president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan educational and policy studies institute based in Washington, DC. He has been the chairman and CEO of CNN and the editor of TIME magazine. He is the author of Steve Jobs (2011), Einstein: His Life and Universe (2007), Benjamin Franklin: An American Life (2003), and Kissinger: A Biography (1992), and coauthor of The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made (1986). Isaacson was born on May 20, 1952, in New Orleans. He is a graduate of Harvard College and of Pembroke College of Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar.

The fourth annual Boston Book Festival will take place Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 in various Copley Square locations. Festival events will include presentations and panels featuring internationally-known writers, scholars, critics, and commentators; programming for children, teens, and families; writing workshops and competitions; outdoor booths; and poetry and music performances. Most events are FREE and open to the public.
