Lewis appeared at the Center on April 9th to speak about her new book, “The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery.”

This fascinating discussion centered on the flops, folds, setbacks, wipeouts, and hiccups that come before one achieves true success and the determination and courage of the human spirit, drawing inspiration from the likes of Frederick Douglass and Samuel Morse, among others.
