A KEEN OBSERVER OF politics, finance and culture, Michael Lewis is one of America’s leading social commentators. His 2014 release, the New York Times best-seller Flash Boys, examines how the legal — and questionable — practice of high-frequency trading has allowed certain Wall Street players to work the stock market to their advantage. The book has been called one of the most provocative releases since Lewis’ The Big Short, which inspired the 2015 movie starring Steve Carrell and Christian Bale. In addition to these, Lewis wrote Moneyball and The Blind Side, also made into movies, which were nominated for Academy Awards. He comes to Marin on Monday, April 3, and Thursday, April 6. speakerseries.net
