Blink and You'll Miss It
Jan 30, 2013
With the New Year comes a resolution for lifestyle changes and overall self-betterment. Well, for the Fort McMurray Public Library, it is about inspiring new ideas. The Northern Insights are a three year-long speaker series designed to bring bestselling authors and journalists as well as educational, thought provoking, and entertaining speakers to Fort McMurray. Northern Insights will engage the community, expand minds and capture imaginations.
Tonight, Wednesday, January 30th, Northern Insights will welcome Malcolm Gladwell, a world-renowned author, writer, and lecturer. One of Gladwell’s most notable works, ‘The Tipping Point’, spent over 400 weeks on the New York Times bestsellers list; Gladwell has received multiple accolades in his career including one of Time magazines ‘100 Most Influential People’.
Currently a staff writer for the New Yorker, his work is described as a new genre of story, an idea-driven narrative that’s focused on the everyday and combines research with material that’s more personal, social and historical.
Malcolm Gladwell continues to push the progressive thinking envelope and is a wonderful beginning to a thought provoking series.
