Book Discussion of "Thank You for Being Late"


Sunday, July 30, 11 a.m.-1 p.m. 
Hosted by an alumna at her home in Tarzana

Join us for an invigorating discussion of the latest book written by internationally renowned author Thomas Friedman '75. The discussion will be led by Donald Newman '63. It is highly recommended that you read the book in advance.

"Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations" exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. It is a work of contemporary history that serves as a field manual for how to write and think about this era of accelerations. It's also an argument for "being late" — for pausing to appreciate this amazing historical epoch we're passing through and to reflect on its possibilities and dangers.

Hosted by an alumna at her home in Tarzana. RSVP for address.
