Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome celebrated writer and journalist WALTER ISAACSON— author of the acclaimed bestsellers Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin— or a discussion of his latest biography, Leonardo da Vinci. Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo's genius was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy.
