There is an exciting upcoming event in the world of books! On Wednesday, October 22nd, from 6:30-8:00pm, The World Science Festival invites you, in collaboration with the New York Historical Society, to join acclaimed journalist John Hockenberry and author Walter Isaacson for a fascinating conversation about creativity, innovation, success and failure.

Few writers can capture the essence of scientific and technological genius as compellingly as Walter Isaacson. Following his award-winning best sellers on Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs, Isaacson has now authored The Innovators, a history of the digital revolution and the men and women, many of them largely unknown, who led it. Spanning three centuries, these are the stories of pioneers and visionaries.

Walter Isaacson, the CEO of the Aspen Institute, has been chairman of CNN and the managing editor of “Time” magazine. He is the author of Steve Jobs; Einstein: His Life and Universe; Benjamin Franklin: An American Life; and Kissinger: A Biography, and the coauthor of The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made. He lives in Washington, DC.

John Hockenberry is an award-winning journalist with twenty-five years experience in radio, broadcast television and print. He is the host of WNYC and PRI’s The Takeaway, a correspondent for PBS Frontline, and a noted presenter and moderator at conferences such as TED, Aspen Ideas, and the World Science Festival.
