As a Bay Area parent, you have first-hand experience just how obsessed our society is with early achievement, whether that means getting into Ivy League colleges, creating the next big startup, or becoming millionaires by 30.

But Rich Karlgaard, publisher of Forbes magazine, celebrates the value of the late bloomer, which he himself was until later in life. And he’s found that most of us take awhile to find our way.

While we all want our children to succeed, Karlgaard has written a must-read for parents and business executives: it’s the insight that comes with age and experience that leads to genuine achievement, and in Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement we can find the roadmap to long-term accomplishment and happiness.

Karlgaard will be in conversation with Robin Hindery, Menlo Park parent and senior editor at Gentry magazine. Join us on May 14th for an evening on the overlooked and underestimated with a writer whose inspiring anecdotes, well-researched science, and own personal journey are lauded by Adam Grant, Daniel Pink, Roger McNamee, Dave Evans, Arianna Huffington, John Ortberg and more.
