Past Events

Valerie Jarrett

"So often when people feel they're at their lowest and unsuccessful, both professionally and personally, that's when you really have to dig deep and listen to the most important voice, and that's the voice inside each and every one of us."

Valerie Jarrett shared her experience as a mother, public servant, and leader in government who's seen the magic that happens once we cast aside unrealistic expectations of a perfect life. In her memoir, Finding My Voice, Jarrett offers a galvanizing testament to the power of staying open to a change in course and an embrace of the uncomfortable. Only then, she argues, can we move forward together and truly learn to value our own voices.

"I wanted to tell a story about what it's been like, because this was an extraordinary experience."

Jonathan Karl, ABC's Chief White House Correspondent, took us behind-the-scenes of the White House daily press briefings for a powerful conversation about the challenges of journalism in the age of Trump. In Front Row at the Trump Show, Karl tells the story of an administration rewriting the role of the presidency on the fly and a press corps that has never been more vital. With humor and unique insight, Karl offers an insider's account like no other.

"I want to hear stories for the rest of my life about how you applied this book, and built something."

Arlan Hamilton, founder and managing partner of Backstage Capital, shared the hard-won wisdom she's picked up on her remarkable journey from food-stamp recipient to trailblazing venture capitalist. In It's About Damn Time, Hamilton argues that, despite what society would have you believe, a privileged background, an influential network, and a fancy college degree are not prerequisites for success.

Stephanie Danler
Stephanie Danler

"Telling the truth can be very liberating and it can be terrifying."

Fans of the novel and STARZ television series, SWEETBITTER, have frequently asked how autobiographical the bestselling account of the New York City restaurant scene really is. Now, author Stephanie Danler explains why her follow-up, Stray: A Memoir, is the book her SWEETBITTER audience not only wanted, but needed. Joined by her editor, Peter Gethers, Danler discussed her book-to-film experience and what prompted her to shift into non-fiction.
