Adam Grant and Allison Sweet Grant - The Gift Inside the Box—in conversation with Daniel H. Pink at Sidwell Friends

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - 7:00pm

On Generosity with Adam Grant and Allison Sweet Grant: Generosity is a value that we often preach but struggle to practice.  How can we show up for others without sacrificing ourselves?  How can we bring more kindness into our homes, schools, and communities?  After being asked for years to write a children’s book on giving, organizational psychologist and Wharton top professor Adam Grant and writer Allison Sweet Grant have finally produced it: THE GIFT INSIDE THE BOX. In a conversational chat, Adam and Allison will share why and how they wrote the book, and what they’ve learned from psychology evidence and personal experience about how we can care for others and ourselves—and teach that value to our children.

Adam Grant and Allison Sweet Grant will be in conversation with Daniel H. Pink.  

Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist at Wharton, and the bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals. He is considered a leading expert on how we can find motivation and meaning, and live more generous and creative lives. Allison Sweet Grant is a psychiatric nurse practitioner with dual masters degrees and a writer. Together, they're parents to three children.

Daniel H. Pink is the author of six provocative books — including his newest, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, which spent four months on the New York Times bestseller list and was named a best book of 2018 by Amazon, iBooks, Goodreads, and several more outlets. His other books include the long-running New York Times bestseller A Whole New Mind and the #1 New York Times bestsellers Drive and To Sell is Human. His books have won multiple awards, have been translated into 39 languages, and have sold three million copies worldwide. He lives in Washington, DC with his family.
