Greed, Games, and Goodness–This Friday!

Announcement | October 20, 2009

Time is running out to get your ticket to the first-ever Greater Good Science Center fundraiser, happening this Friday evening on the UC Berkeley campus.

"Greed, Games, and Goodness" will feature a conversation between the GGSC's Dacher Keltner and best-selling author and journalist (and Bay Area literary celeb) Michael Lewis. They'll discuss some of Lewis's areas of expertise–the economic crisis (Liar's Poker, Panic, and the forthcoming The Big Short), sports (Moneyball, The Blind Side), and parenthood (this year's very funny Home Game)–and the scientific research that illuminates them.

Lewis is hilarious and always insightful, so it should be a fun evening–not to mention a great way to support the GGSC.

You can still buy tickets here. Hope to see you Friday!
