Walter Isaacson will give two readings in New Orleans this week



You've got two opportunities to see Walter Isaacson over the next week. The bestselling biographer of Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin and Henry Kissinger will be back in his hometown after Thanksgiving, first at Isidore Newman School (1903 Jefferson St.), his alma mater, on Saturday, Nov. 29 at 1 p.m., then at the Jewish Community Center New Orleans (5342 St. Charles Ave.) on Monday, Dec. 1. at 7 p.m.

Both events - the first hosted by Garden District Book Shop, the second by Octavia Books — are free and open to the public. Isaacson, who is also president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, will read from his latest book, The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution, then answer questions from the audience and sign books.
