Two lectures set Tuesday at Aspen Institute

The Aspen Institute will host two high-profile lectures Tuesday. From 2 to 3 p.m. at the Doerr-Hosier Center, as part of the Aspen Institute’s Hurst Lecture Series, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt will have a conversation with Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute.

From 2001 to 2011, Schmidt served as Google’s chief executive officer, and before that he was the chairman and CEO of Novell and chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems. He is a current member of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2006, among other honors.

From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. that day at Paepcke Auditorium, Isaacson will give the Mercedes T. Bass Lecture talk, in which he will discuss “Reflections on Leadership: Einstein, Franklin and Jobs.”

Isaacson, the former chairman and CEO of CNN and the managing editor of Time magazine, has written six books including an authorized biography of Steve Jobs.

He also is the chair emeritus of Teach for America and is on the board of United Airlines and Tulane University and the Board of Overseers at Harvard University.

Tickets to both lectures are $20 and are available through Aspen Show Tickets at the Wheeler Opera House.
