Podcast: Adam Braun in Conversation with Joan Lunden, May 2014

| No Comments
On Monday, May 5, AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary presented Adam Braun, Greenwich native and Founder and CEO of Pencils of Promise, an award-winning nonprofit organization that has opened more than 200 schools in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Braun was interviewed by Joan Lunden, journalist, author, and former co-host of ABC's Good Morning America. Seeding the interview were snippets from Braun's newly released debut book, The Promise of a Pencil, How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change, which is based on his experiences launching and running an effective nonprofit in a new media world. Braun spoke openly about his successes, and with humility about his failures. Patrons were inspired by the 'impossible' accomplishments of this Greenwich native at such a young age. Click on the link below to listen to (or download) the podcast from the evening.
