Live from 92nd Street Y in N.Y. at Beth El

Tuesday, Oct. 1, 7:30 pm

Through a grant from the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and with the support of the Milton Kramer Scholar-in- Residence Fund, Congregation Beth El will host Malcolm Gladwell in a program broadcast live via satellite from the 92nd Street Y in New York. This will be an interactive experience, with an opportunity during the live event to submit questions to the speaker via email.

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of The Tipping Point, as well as many other books, and is a staff writer with The New Yorker magazine. His topic will be “When Underdogs Break the Rules.” He will discuss why people are so often surprised when underdogs win; whether Goliaths make mistakes in spite of their strength— or because of it; and why the childhoods of people at the top of so many professions marked by deprivation. Gladwell uncovers the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty.

The satellite broadcast series Live from NY’s 92nd Street Y™, now in its ninth year, brings lectures, interviews and readings from nationally and internationally recognized political figures, entertainers, newsmakers and authors to community organizations across America and Canada.
