Walter Isaacson

Walter Isaacson is the critically acclaimed biographer of such brilliant and complicated men as Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, and Henry Kissinger. Isaacson is also president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, a nonpartisan educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. On the heels of the successful publication of his book The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution, this former CNN chairman and Time magazine editor comes to Chicago to discuss creative citizens and the power of the humanities in the 21st century.
