Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.

Admission: Free, groups welcome
Reservations Recommended: Call 215.409.6700 or order online.

Curator and art historian Sarah Lewis explores creative endeavors —from Nobel Prize–winning discoveries to entrepreneurial inventions and works in the arts—in her debut book The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. Lewis will sit down with National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen for a fascinating discussion about 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.

A book sale and signing will follow the program.
