City Arts & Lectures says…

Science journalist Joshua Foer became the United State Memory Champion in 2007, after researching how others use memory devices competitively. His forthcoming first book is based on that experience, and called Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything. Foer is also the co-founder of Atlas Obscura, a website dedicated to places that are off the beaten path and appeal to the senses of wonder and curiosity. Douglas McGray is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Pop-Up Magazine.
