Book Launch: David Sax presents
The Soul of an Entrepreneur: Work and Life Beyond the Startup Myth
In conversation with Greenlight co-owner Jessica Stockton-Bagnulo
In The Soul of an Entrepreneur, David Sax—longtime business and culture journalist and the author of The Revenge of Analog, The Tastemakers, and Save the Deli—delivers a look at what entrepreneurship in America really looks like today, casting aside the tech-bro Silicon-Valley myth to tell the stories of real small business owners and why they choose the independent life. With all of his books, Sax has tapped into the reasons people go into business—whether it’s a nostalgia for tangible things, a passion for food, or the desire to preserve cultural heritage. Similarly, The Soul of an Entrepreneur is not your usual book about entrepreneurship. From immigrants starting family businesses in a new country, to burnt-out professionals adapting work to match the lifestyles they want, to minority business owners finding creative ways to serve their own communities, to employee-owned, mission-driven businesses, Sax talks to entrepreneurs across North America to present a more realistic, diverse portrait of today’s startup business owner. For tonight’s online book launch, Sax talks with a local entrepreneur: Greenlight Bookstore co-owner Jessica Stockton-Bagnulo! Join us for a discussion of the realities of American entrepeneurship as seen through a Brooklyn bookstore.
