An Evening with Malcolm Gladwell

The Hinckley Institute of Politics is proud to announce the inaugural Sam Rich Lecture Series with celebrated author, and New Yorker staff writer, Malcolm Gladwell. Dubbed by Time magazine as “one of the world’s 100 most influential people,” Gladwell has written four phenomenally-successful best-sellers that have changed the way we think about our world and, in the case of his first book, The Tipping Point, our very vernacular. Three of Gladwell’s books have also been number one international best-sellers.

Gladwell’s address will cover his much-anticipated fifth book David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants,” which was released on Oct. 1. It is already topping the charts and is being praised as his best work yet. Hinckley Institute guests will be some of the nation’s first to hear Gladwell discuss his new conclusions.

The event will take place at Abravanel Hall on Nov. 5 and promises to sell out well in advance. General tickets are available for purchase on Art Tix. Discounted  University of Utah student and staff tickets are available at the Hinckley Institute office (OSH 253) with a valid ID.

If you are interested in securing exclusive VIP tickets which include a dinner/reception with Gladwell prior to his speech, please contact Ellesse S. Balli for more information.
