The Pursuit of Happiness: An Evening With Arthur Brooks and Eric Metaxas

Are you happy? Do you want the good life—and for others to have it too? Come out to Columbia University’s Lerner Auditorium, May 8, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., to hear from two New York Times–bestselling authors: Arthur Brooks, a public policy expert, author of 10 books, and think-tank president who “lives in Washington so you don’t have to,” and Eric Metaxas, noted public speaker and author of “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy” and “Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery.”

This public conversation, hosted by Hashtag Productions and the American Enterprise Institute, will include candid Catholic and evangelical perspectives on suffering, happiness, hard work, and the conditions that make for true human flourishing. Moderated by Gregory Thornbury, president of The King’s College, two leading thinkers (and dads) will share fresh insights about leadership, faith, business, humor, and public policy as they speak with students, young professionals, and mainstream New Yorkers.

For a preview, please check out recent conversations Brooks has recently hosted at AEI with the Dalai Lama and Bill Gates, and Metaxas has hosted in New York with Malcolm Gladwell and Rod Dreher, to name a few. The first 500 students to register will be admitted free of charge and will receive a complimentary book from AEI’s Values & Capitalism project, which is cosponsoring this event.
