Amanda Ripley - The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way ♦

In her second book, the award-winning literary journalist and author of The Unthinkable follows three American students during their year abroad to investigate the highly rated public school systems of Finland, South Korea, and Poland. Ripley’s report compares American emphasis on self-esteem and sports with other nations’ focus on hard work, resilience, and not being afraid to fail—early and often.

Beer and wine will be available.
