The Plan II Honors Program is pleased to present Adam Gopnik, best-selling author and staff writer for the "New Yorker" as our featured guest for the 2010 Glickman Centennial Lecture. The lecture is titled "Lincoln and Darwin" and is based on Gopnik's most recent book, "Angels & Ages: A Short Book about Darwin, Lincoln, and Modern Life."

Adam Gopnik's work for the "New Yorker" has won both the National Magazine Award for Essay and the George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting. His most recent work embodies his gift for using historical biography to explore the way we live today. Gopnik speaks with singular wit, eloquence and insight on modern life and culture, and possesses a rich trove of delightful stories and revealing observations about people and places and everyday life.

The Glickman Centennial Lecture is made possible by the generous support of Julius and Suzan Glickman.
