Moon Walking With Einstein

Date: Thursday, October 4th, 2012
Time: 4:30 PM
Location: Little Theater, Queens Campus

Guest Speaker: Bestselling Author Joshua Foer

On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they’ve forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after just one year of intensive memory training, Foer won the U.S. Memory Championship and competed internationally.

Named “One of Ten People Who Could Change the World” by The New Statesman, Foer’s highly anticipated debut book, Moonwalking with Einstein, became a #1 Amazon best-seller just days after publication.

With a penchant for investigating the world’s oddities and eccentricities, Foer has written for National Geographic, Esquire, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Slate. No less eccentric than his subjects, Foer is the co-founder of Atlas Obscura, an online compendium of “The World’s Wonders, Curiosities, and Esoterica.”
