Don’t miss tonight’s Author Event at the Union Square Barnes & Noble featuring author Adam Braun. Humans of New York’s Brandon Stanton will be in conversation with Braun to discuss his new book, The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change.
Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just sixteen years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling as a college student, he met a young boy begging on the streets of India. When Braun asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, he simply answered, “A pencil.”
Find out more about his journey tonight, 7 PM at the Union Square Barnes & Noble located at 33 East 17th Street, on the north side of Union Square Park.
