You're Invited: The Feast's Salon on Education Innovation

If you're in New York, please join me two weeks from now at the Soho House, where The Feast is convening a salon on education and innovation.

The Feast was started two years ago by a group of people who wanted to create a community that lived at the intersection of creativity, entrepreneurship, and social change —and who also wanted to have fun while doing it.

Tickets and more information can be gotten here.
