Happened at Penn

Author: Aimee LaBrie

Last week, one of my favorite writers visited Penn’s campus. Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference (2000), Blink (2005),  and Outliers: The Story of Success (2008), gave a stimulating lecture on his latest book at the Penn Museum. His appearance was in connection with the Integrated Studies Program, which is studying the question of “thinking” this semester as part of Penn’s “Year of Proof” academic theme for 2012-13; the Ben Franklin Scholars; and the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience.

If you missed it, don’t fret. You can view his lecture in full here. Can’t get enough? Check out his 2009 appearance at a Penn Alumni event regarding “Why Some Succeed and Others Fail.”

You can also read or download a podcast of Gladwell’s 2011 interview by Peter Cappelli in Knowledge@Wharton.
