Prospect Sierra School presents MICHAEL LEWIS at Berkeley City Club

An Intimate & Irreverent Evening with Michael Lewis

Author of The Big Short, Boomerang, and Liar’s Poker, successful and succinct investigative reports of Wall Street and the financial crisis, Michael Lewis is perhaps the best-known, most influential financial journalist of our time.  His latest book, Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, uncovers the “rigged” system of equity trading.  Lewis is also a keen observer of human instinct, determination and compassion, so skillfully brought to life in his personal tributes The Blind Side and Coach; and with great humor in his reflections on parenting, Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood.

In this fireside chat moderated by Katherine Dinh, Head of Prospect Sierra School, Lewis will share childhood memories, discuss his work and field questions from the assembly.  “An Intimate & Irreverent Evening with Michael Lewis” is a benefit for the tuition assistance program at Prospect Sierra School, where Michael Lewis and his wife Tabitha Soren’s children attend.
