Sundance Mountain Resort’s Author Series will kick off May 17 with Sarah Lewis, a Harvard-educated scholar, curator and author of “The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery.” Also in the lineup are New York Times best-selling authors Eric Schlosser, best known for his investigative reporting in “Fast Food Nation,” and David Sheff, who wrote the critically acclaimed memoir “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction.”
Schlosser will speak June 21 about his book “Command and Control, Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident and the Illusion of Safety.” At Sheff’s Oct. 25 appearance, he will discuss his book “Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America’s Greatest Tragedy.”
Now in its 12th year, the Sundance Author Series has featured notable statesman-and-authors Jimmy Carter and Madeleine Albright, as well as Kathryn Stockett (“The Help”) and Cheryl Strayed (“Wild”). The resort looks for writers who offer insights into American culture and ideas for creating a better world, said Chad Linebaugh, Sundance general manager, in a news release.
“Each author’s book offers a glimpse inside complex issues that touch our lives and provide wisdom and thought as to how to embrace and confront our concerns,” he said.
