Gladwell's address will cover his much-anticipated fifth bookDavid and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, which will be released on October 1. Accordingly, Hinckley guests will be some of the nation's first to hear Gladwell discuss his new conclusions. 


The event will take place at Abravanel Hall on November 5 and promises to sell out well in advance. Tickets will be available for purchase the morning ofSeptember 9 from Art Tix.
