February 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Alexandra Wolfe shares an illuminating look into the world of Silicon Valley, a culture bubble of technolites, brilliant college dropout, and polyamorists. Young people from around the world travel to this anti-society to hatch their ideas, start a company, strike it rich, and become powerful and famous. In Valley of the Gods, Wolfe follows three of these upstarts who have “stopped out” of college and real life, aspiring to be the next immortals of Silicon Valley, like Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Thiel, and Elon Musk.

The event will take place at 6:30pm preceded by a light reception.
