Dubbed "brave and powerful" by Publishers Weekly, Charles Blow's searing new memoir Fire Shut Up in My Bones describes his Deep Southern upbringing and a legacy of abuse that he thought he'd escaped when he went to college, only to find it perpetuated in a fraternity's brutal hazing. Blow overcame those obstacles to become an innovative graphic designer, who pioneered the visual op-ed for The New York Times. The discussion's set to be moderated by Professor Ian F. Haney-López of the UC Berkeley Boalt School of Law, and is followed by a book signing. Learn More

Overall, a good event. However, The Commonwealth Club spent way too much time self-promoting and doing introductions. The female moderator who was "in conversation" with Sam Yagan was not memorable except for her annoying laugh. Sam Yagan though is one smart guy, and his ideas about online dating are intriguing. He stole the show: could tell a good story, handled himself well on-the-spot,and was very personable in a geeky, math major kind of way. Of course he won't give up their mysterious algorithms! But he did give some insight to the group as to what the data crunchers behind the scenes at his two dating site companies are doing. The complimentary cocktails and munchies offered by the Commonwealth Club after the talk were also nice.
