Walter Isaacson Signs Leonardo da Vinci

Now a #1 New York Times Bestseller again with his biography of Leonardo da Vinci, Walter Isaacson will be at Pass Books/Cat Island Coffeehouse to speak about and sign his recent book on Sunday, December 10th from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM. Join us for wine and mimosas as Isaacson shares his thoughts and insights on da Vinci.    

Walter Isaacson, author of the acclained bestsellers Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin, brings Leonardo da Vinci to life in an exacting new biography. This book is the capstone to Isaacson's biograpies on genius, creativity, innovation, and where the humanities intersect the sciences.

Based on thousands of pages of Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Isaacson weaves a narrative that connects his art to his science. He shows how Leonardo's genuis was based on skills we can improve in ourselves, such as passionate curiosity, careful observation, and an imagination so playful that it flirted with fantasy.

He produced the two most famous paintings in history, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa. But in his mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursuded innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry. His ability to stand at the crossroads of the humanities and the sciences, made iconic by his drawing of the Vitruvian Man, made him history's most creative genius.
