General information:
Description: Malcolm Gladwell, one of the best-known writers in the world today, is coming to McGill for the 2013 Seagram Lecture.

On November 14, join us for a very special talk from the author of bestsellers including Blink, Outliers and The Tipping Point. Gladwell - who grew up in Elmira, Ont. and has served as a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1996 - will discuss his most recent effort, David and Goliath, a work exploring the struggle underdogs face against favourites. The book saw its beginnings in a piece Gladwell published in The New Yorker in 2009.

Accompanying the author will be Eleanor Wachtel, the host and co-creator of CBC Radio's Writers & Company, as well as the host of Wachtel on the Arts. Wachtel - who has written several books herself, among them 2003's Original Minds and 2007's Random Illuminations: Conversations With Carol Shields - will moderate the evening's discussion.

Presented by the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, the Seagram Lecture has hosted thought-provoking scholars since its launch in 1997.
