HARRISON, N.Y. -- David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times and political analyst on PBS's "NewsHour" will share his latest reflections on Tuesday, Feb. 16, at 8 p.m. at Manhattanville College, to kick off this year’s highly popular Castle Conversations public forum series.
The host is Elliot Forrest of WQXR. In addition to Brooks, other Castle Conversations speakers this year are: Steve Wozniak (April 5), co-founder Apple Computer, Inc. with Steve Jobs in 1976; Twyla Tharp (Sept. 20), founder of Twyla Tharp Dance company and Tony and Emmy award winner, and Danny Meyer (Nov. 29), chief executive officer of Union Square Hospitality Group, whose restaurants and chefs have earned an unprecedented 25 James Beard Awards.
Brooks is the author of several books, including his newest one "The Road to Character," which explains why selflessness leads to greater success. A previous book, "Bobos in Paradise," was a New York Times bestseller.
“No other forum like this exists in Westchester and Fairfield counties,” said Jon C. Strauss, president of Manhattanville College. “We want the speakers to stimulate discussions about the radically changing world in which we live. It is our way of reaching out to the community, building relationships, and sharing with our neighbors the ideas of the brightest minds in America.”
