14th Annual Fall Lecture Luncheon

Hosted by the SPAC Action Council

ThursdayOctober 189:30 AM



The Saratoga Performing Art Center Action Council invites you to participate in a day of lecture, shopping, and dining at this year’s 14th Annual Fall Lecture Luncheon. On Thursday, October, 18, 2018 join us as featured speaker, Will Schwalbe as he indulges us on one of life’s greatest pleasures… reading! Afterwards enjoy some boutique shopping before ending the day with a delicious fall lunch.

Will Schwalbe is the author of three books, “Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do it Better,” “The End of Your Life Book Club” and “Books for Living.” His mother instilled in him a love for reading, which has remained a constant in his life. He speaks passionately about the enjoyment we can take away from reading and how books can teach us to live each day to the fullest extent.

Mr. Schwalbe currently lives in New York City and has spent time living in Hong Kong as well as various parts of New England. He had early stints in TV and journalism and worked for six years at a startup he founded called cookstr.com. Most of his career has been spent in publishing and he currently works for Macmillan Publishers.
