    The lively, mind-opening conversations of the annual two-day Berkeleyside Uncharted Ideas Festival is now a series of single-evening events. Join us for ideas on the edge that challenge your assumptions and thinking. Our Evening Idea Fests are produced with the generous support of North Berkeley Wealth Management.

    Our Evening Ideas Fest on April 23 and it promises to be an entertaining evening. In conversation: Oakland-based multi-disciplinary artist Jenny Odell, whose book, How to do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy was a break-out hit, praised by the New York Times and selected by President Barack Obama as one of his favorite reads of 2019; and Robin Sloan, author of two books — Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore and Sourdough — and maker of olive oil. For the second conversation, New York Times journalist Conor Dougherty will be in conversation with Berkeleyside's Lance Knobel. Dougherty's new book Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America is a deeply reported investigation of the roots of the housing crisis and possible solutions. Coincidentally, Dougherty's work also garnered a recommendation from President Obama in a recent tweet.

    It's an evening that is certain to make you think and then, we hope, act.

    Note: doors open at 6:00 p.m. on each evening and the program starts at 7 p.m.
