This event has already taken place.

Host: how to: Academy
Location: The Royal Geographical Society 1 Kensington Gore London SW7 2AR
Speaker: Michael Lewis in conversation with Dominic Lawson

Michael Lewis, author of the runaway bestsellers The Big Short, Moneyball, The Blind Side, and the cult classic Liar’s Poker, comes to London for a rare public appearance with Dominic Lawson.

Lewis’s new book, Flash Boys: Cracking the Money Code returns to Wall Street to lay bare the biggest new story since the crash. With the world’s money now traded by computer code, a dark world of high-frequency trading exists. It’s a landscape of cunning, secrecy, and barely measurable milliseconds of speed, in which the stock exchange itself has become complicit in its own corruption. Join us to hear the man Tom Wolfe calls ‘probably the best current writer in America’ for an evening of riveting insight and discussion.

“I read Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I’ll never play like that. But it’s good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like.” Malcolm Gladwell
