Book Talk: Malcolm Gladwell "Talking to Strangers"

Bestselling author, New Yorker staff writer, and podcast host Malcolm Gladwell comes to Montclair in a pre-festival event for Succeed2gether’s Montclair Literary Festival to discuss Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About The People We Don’t Know. Join us for an evening of fascinating insights and digressive anecdotes from the renowned author and story-teller.

In his latest book, Gladwell argues that something is very wrong with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know. And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.

Tickets ($45) include a copy of Talking to Strangers. Doors open at 6.15pm. Tickets at the door cost $50. The VIP admission includes a post-event cocktail party, priority entry and reserved seating. Tickets bit.ly/2LoY6HH

Malcolm Gladwell is the author of five New York Times bestsellers. He is also the co-founder of Pushkin Industries, an audio content company that produces the podcasts Revisionist History, which reconsiders things both overlooked and misunderstood, and Broken Record, where he, Rick Rubin, and Bruce Headlam interview musicians across a wide range of genres. 

This event is a fundraiser for Montclair-based non-profit Succeed2gether, which offers free after-school one-on-one tutoring and enrichment classes with the aim of closing the education opportunity gap in Essex County. The fourth annual Montclair Literary Festival will take place March 25 to 29, 2020. Visit succeed2gether.org/montclair-literary-festival/ for more details of the program, which will feature more than 100 authors.
