Lawrence Weschler

Listen to Lawrence Weschler

Lawrence Weschler is renowned for the wild diversity of his passions and interests – his publisher, McSweeney’s, uses ‘Weschlerian’ as an adjective. He was a staff writer for the New Yorker for over 20 years and has been shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize.

In an inventive illustrated night of ideas, he’ll share his unique way of looking at the world. Drawing connections between the Mona Lisa and Monica Lewinsky, Rembrandt and the death scene of Ché Guevara, he shows how we see by way of what we’ve already seen.
