Wharton Connect

Authors@Wharton Speaker Series

We are busy preparing a fantastic Fall 2015 lineup. Please check back in early August.


Bestselling Authors on Campus

Launched in 2012 by Professor Adam Grant, the speaker series is open to all students, alumni, and members of the Penn community at no cost. Authors@Wharton speakers are world-renowned authors of trade books who come to campus share their ideas on topics ranging from management to the social sciences to gender in the workplace. We often distribute a limited number of the speakers' books at the events, and have the UPENN bookstore onsite during the event.

Events are typically held on weeknights throughout the Fall and Spring semesters from 4:30pm-6:00pm.

Our 2014-2015 lineup included Peter Thiel, Malcolm Gladwell, BBC's Katty Kay, Google's Eric Schmidt & Jonathan Rosenberg, Jack Welch, Stephen Dubner, Gretchen Rubin and more. For our full list of previous speakers, click here.
