Isaac Lidsky knows better than most how the brain confronts new challenges. He went from childhood actor, to Harvard Law School graduate, to successful entrepreneur. He also began to go blind at age thirteen, eventually losing his sight entirely by the time he was twenty-five. He will discuss how the brain overcomes limitations and how perception goes beyond the visual with neuroscientist Dr. Jacqueline Gottlieb.
The program will be followed by a book signing with Isaac Lidsky and his book Eyes Wide Open: Overcoming Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a World That Can’t See Clearly.
Isaac Lidsky is presented in partnership with the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives.
Brainwave is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.

Dr. Kenneth B. Liegner has been practicing for over 25 years and has treated patients who come from near and far.Dr. Liegner has waged to advance what we know about Lyme and other tick-borne diseases… all along, he has called for further scientific work to understand this disease and to formulate a cure. In a Poughkeepsie Journal Op-Ed in 2012, he tellingly said:
If we can put a man on the moon, we can solve the problems posed by Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections. We just need the will.
We will also have Dr. Liegner’s book: In the Crucible of Chronic Lyme Disease, a documentational history of the struggle to characterize the nature of Lyme disease in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

What made for good TV did not make for good journalism.
WNYC Radio editor Rebecca Carroll hosts an unconventional conversation with O’Brien about her new political magazine show “Matter of Fact” and how black and brown journalists and media makers can deliver balanced coverage with President Trump in the White House for the next four years.
Sunday September 3rd 1939. At the moment Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain broadcasts to the nation Britain’s declaration of war with Germany, a senior Secret Service agent breaks into Maisie Dobbs’ flat to await her return. Dr. Francesca Thomas has an urgent assignment for Maisie: to find the killer of a man who escaped occupied Belgium as a boy, some twenty-three years earlier during the Great War.
In a London shadowed by barrage balloons, bomb shelters and the threat of invasion, within days another former Belgian refugee is found murdered. And as Maisie delves deeper into the killings of the dispossessed from the “last war,” a new kind of refugee — an evacuee from London — appears in Maisie’s life. The little girl billeted at Maisie’s home in Kent does not, or cannot, speak, and the authorities do not know who the child belongs to or who might have put her on the “Operation Pied Piper” evacuee train. They know only that her name is Anna.
As Maisie’s search for the killer escalates, the country braces for what is to come. Britain is approaching its gravest hour — and Maisie could be nearing a crossroads of her own.
Join us Tuesday, March 21 at 7pm for a conversation and signing. Author Jacqueline Winspear will be in conversation with author Tom Santopietro. This event will feature priority seating with purchase of In This Grave Hour from our store, so hang onto your receipts!
