Walter Isaacson: Leonardo da Vinci

Sunday, October 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Members-$20 & guests-$30. Click here to register.

Join the Village and Chicago Humanities Festival to hear biographer Walter Isaacson discuss his magisterial new book, Leonardo da Vinci. Isaacson shows how da Vinci’s creativity was based on skills we can improve in ourselves: passionate curiosity, a willingness to question, careful observation, and an imagination so playful it flirted with fantasy.

A Village discussion of Isaacson’s book led by member Hollis Hines follows on November 19.

A limited number of books are available for sale—$17. Call the Village office at 773.248.8700 to place your order.
