Malcolm Gladwell to speak to sold-out Penn crowd

'David and Goliath' author will discuss power dynamics, research

Author, journalist and speaker Malcolm Gladwell will visit Philadelphia for a special presentation April 8. He'll speak about his most recent book, "David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants," to a sold-out crowd at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.

New in paperback, "David and Goliath" explores power dynamics and how we think about those with and without power. Gladwell is well-known for best-selling works like "Blink," "The Tipping Point" and "Outliers." 

Thanks to the Arts & Business Council, Gladwell will discuss the research from his latest work in Harrison Auditorium and each of the lucky attendees will receive a copy of it. After his speech, Gladwell will be interviewed by Thomas Jefferson University’s President and CEO, Dr. Stephen Klasko.

Klasko will then participate in a panel discussing Gladwell's findings and concepts. He will moderate a panel including CEO of Here’s My Chance Dave Gloss, Mural Arts Founder Jane Golden and University City Science Center President and CEO Stephen S. Tang.
