This year’s guest speaker will be author, executive editor and chief development officer of Encyclopædia Britannica Ted Pappas, who will discuss how perseverance in the face of great change and adversity is the key to success for both companies like Britannica (which is thriving today in the digital age, with partnerships with YouTube and Amazon Alexa and digital products used in 90 countries of the world) and for us as individuals, in our personal and professional lives. RSVP Necessary – SEATS ARE LIMITED. TO RSVP, CALL 843-723-9912 or EMAIL dreutter@charlestonlibrarysociety.org.

This messages Pappas talks about are the key take-aways from his two new books, True Grit: Classic Tales of Perseverance (highlighting how 10 historic figures –- including Marie Curie, Madeleine Albright, even Dr. Seuss in children’s literature) battled through great adversity to change the world in seminal ways; and the Encyclopaedia Britannica Anniversary Edition: 250 Years of Excellence (1768-2018).
