Colin Wright, Author & Host of Let's Know Things — Austin
It’s never been more important to live with purpose, on purpose. To live intentionally. Colin Wright, the bestselling author, full-time traveler, and host of the Let’s Know Things podcast, is touring North America, speaking about how we perceive the world around us, how we behave based on those perceptions, and how to become who we need to be to face the challenges of today and of tomorrow. For this event, he'll be focusing on living intentionally, personal growth, and how the way we behave as individuals influences the shape of our societies. This talk expounds upon concepts covered in his books Becoming Who We Need To Be, Considerations, and Act Accordingly. Doors are at 12:30pm, and the presentation will start at 1pm and last about 90 minutes: 55 minutes for the talk, and another 35 for questions from the audience. After the presentation, there'll be time for hellos, hugs, book signing, and good-natured milling about. More about the speaker: Colin Wright More about the tour: The Becoming Tour Venue details: This event will take place at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, which is located about 12 miles from Downtown Austin (more about the venue). This venue is a Botanic Garden (though the talk will take place inside a building within the garden), and attendees will receive free admission to the Center (usually $12/person) in addition to being able to attend the talk. So I'd recommend either showing up a little early, or planning to stay after, to explore the gardens. There's also a café on site that serves salads, sandwiches, and coffee/tea, if you're keen to get lunch or coffee beforehand. Parking is free and abundant at the Center, and the central complex (where the buildings are located and where the talk will take place) and the gardens are wheelchair accessible. Event details: Doors at 12:30pm, presentation at 1pm (so please arrive before 1pm), book signing & free hugs/cordial handshakes at 2:30pm. I'll be at the Center from around 10am onward, so feel free to show up early to explore the gardens, grab a bite, and make a day of it; I certainly plan to. I booked the space on a Sunday to make it more likely that folks will be able to come out and enjoy the gardens alongside the speaking event :) Books will be available to buy on-site, for cash, card, or Venmo/Paypal, and please feel free to bring books you already own if you'd like to get them signed. Tickets: Please bring your ticket, either printed out or on your phone, to the event. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
