Event: A Celebration of Oliver Sacks with Simone Dinnerstein, Atul Gawande, Bill Hayes and Maria Popova

Attention NYC! One week from now, the Kauffman Concert Hall will be hosting this excellent event: 

“A words-and-music tribute to the beloved neurologist and author upon posthumous publication of The River of Consciousness, a collection of essays displaying Dr. Sacks’s passionate scientific engagement — with evolution, botany, memory, time, Darwin and Freud, among other subjects — and further demonstrating his joy in knowledge and unceasing curiosity to understand what makes us human.

Monday 20 November at 7:30, 92nd St. Y, at Lexington Ave in Manhattan.

We have an amazing panel including Bill HayesAtul Gawande, and Maria Popova (Brainpickings), a piano recital by none other than Simone Dinnerstein.

There will be great ideas, passion, and a surprise or two…”
