A Beautiful Mind: Genius, Madness, Reawakening: Sylvia Nasar, author and professor of journalism at Columbia University, will recount the story of mathematical genius and inventor of game theory John Nash. Nash woke from decades of devastating mental illness to win a Nobel Prize and world acclaim. Ms. Nasar will describe how this drama about the mystery of the human mind evolved from a New York Times story into an award-winning biography and a Ron Howard movie starring Russell Crowe. A Beautiful Mind was the winner of the 1998 National Book Critics Circle Award.
