      EVENT DETAILS
      Author Event + Book Talk - Steven Levy - "Facebook: The Inside Story"

      Renowned tech writer Steven Levy delivers the definitive history of one of America’s most powerful and controversial companies: Facebook.

      Steven Levy has had unprecedented access to Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg for three years. Based on hundreds of interviews inside and outside the company, Levy’s sweeping narrative digs deep into the whole story of the company that has changed the world and reaped the consequences. There is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in American daily life. And in light of recent controversies surrounding election-influencing “fake news” accounts, the handling of its users’ personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the national conversation.

      Steven Levy is Wired's editor at large. The Washington Post has called him "America's premier technology journalist." His previous positions include the founder of Backchannel and chief technology writer and senior editor for Newsweek. Levy has written seven previous books and has written for Rolling Stone, Harper's Magazine, Macworld, The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, The New Yorker, and Premiere. Levy has also won several awards during his thirty-plus years of writing about technology, including for his book Hackers, which PC Magazine named the best sci-tech book written in the last twenty years; and for Crypto, which won the grand e-book prize at the 2001 Frankfurt Book Fair.
