The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
77. All About Oliver: Lawrence Weschler in Conversation with Brian Goldman
Interviewer: Brian Goldman
Sure to be as charming as it is cerebral, this event explores the incredible work of Dr. Oliver Sacks, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and countless others, as told by his confidant and former New Yorker staff writer.
“The most incredible thing in the Universe” is how neurologist, naturalist and author Oliver Sacks thought of the brain—and thanks to his internationally-bestselling titles, such as The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, countless others agreed. In this delightful event as charming as it is cerebral, New Yorker contributor and one of Dr. Sack’s closest friends, Lawrence Weschler, speaks with CBC White Coat, Black Art host, Dr. Brian Goldman, about the legacy of the beloved doctor, as told in Weschler’s lyrical biography, And How Are You, Dr. Sacks?, completed at the entreaty of the man himself who “poured out a stream of glorious, ribald, hilarious, and often profound conversation that establishes him as one of the great talkers of the age.”
