Modeled after the acclaimed TED talks,

QBR’s TEXT Talks asks authors to discuss and explore the idea behind their book with an audience. The listener is asked to engage the writer in the usability of his/her idea; the author engages the listener into an idea that stretches, confronts, or moves you to another point of view. No reading from books here…TEXT TALKS will enlighten, engage and radicalize your perspective on issues that can change your life.
