Acquired Knowledge: The Mysteries and Perils of Adolescence
Education goes far beyond the classroom, especially when it comes to the lessons that cut the deepest. Whether growing apart from a lifelong friend in adolescence, exploring philosophical ideas typically considered beyond a child’s grasp, or losing a close friend before their time, the roller-coaster ride of youth can be terrifying. Claire Messud (The Burning Girl), Norwegian Jostein Gaarder (Questions Asked), and Sorayya Khan(City of Spies: A Novel) cover the many ways the world can change before a young person’s eyes. Moderated by Eric Banks.
