We’re pleased to welcome back Austin Kleon, author of Steal Like An Artist. If you missed out on the opportunity to see him before, be sure to catch him this time as he discusses his latest book, Show Your Work! Show Your Work! tackles how generosity trumps genius. It’s about getting findable, about using the network instead of wasting time “networking.” It’s not self-promotion, it’s self-discovery—let others into your process, then let them steal from you. Filled with illustrations, quotes, stories, and examples, Show Your Work! offers ten transformative rules for being open, generous, brave, productive. Austin Kleon is the bestselling author of three illustrated books: Steal Like An Artist, Newspaper Blackout, and Show Your Work! His work has been translated into over a dozen languages and featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, PBS Newshour, and in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. New York Magazine called his work “brilliant,” The Atlantic called him “positively one of the most interesting people on the Internet,” and The New Yorker said his poems “resurrect the newspaper when everybody else is declaring it dead.”
