Lecture and Book Signing with Peter Thiel
Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Lecture and book signing with PayPal Co-Founder Peter Thiel on his new book, Zero to One:Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future (Publish Date: September 16, 2014).

In Zero to One, Silicon Valley legend Peter Thiel shares his innovative new theory and formula for how to build the companies of the future: the only way to create lasting value and profits is to create and monopolize a new market instead of trying to compete in an existing one. The next great company won’t be another Microsoft or Apple--those have been done. Instead it will be something completely new that we have yet to dream up. Here Thiel shows how to build companies of the future by going from Zero to One.

Peter Thiel is a technology entrepreneur and investor best known for co-founding PayPal. Since then he has co-founded the data analytics firm Palantir Technologies, made the first outside investment in Facebook, provided early funding for companies like SpaceX and LinkedIn and established and funds the Thiel Foundation, which nurtures tomorrow’s tech visionaries.

In “One Nation,” Dr. Carson calls for respectful discussion and disagreement, with no subjects off limits. Applying the problem-solving skills he honed as a surgeon, he takes on tough issues such as education, health care, family values, race relations, taxes, charity, and the role of faith in public life.

Avoiding the political correctness of politicians and the animosity of Washington lawyers, Dr. Carson In his journey from poverty to the top of his field, Dr. Carson has lived the American dream.

Reagan Forum with Vin Scully
Wednesday, June 11, 2014

In honor of our Baseball exhibition, we hosted a Reagan Forum featuring Hall of Fame Broadcaster Vin Scully.

This year, Vin Scully is announcing an unprecedented 65th season for the Dodgers organization. Scully calls all Dodger home games and road games in California and Arizona.

When Scully first began broadcasting in 1950, the Dodgers had yet to win a single World Series and were known affectionately as "Dem Bums."
