We are pleased to announce that we have rescheduled our 2020 event, An Evening with Max Brooks, to this spring, June 17, 2021. This year, we will celebrate together virtually, with sponsors and table hosts having the option to host a “pod” of ten individuals at their homes, yards, businesses, etc.
An Evening with Max Brooks will include a dinner and auction, along with the opportunity to learn more about Park Academy and support our mission. The evening will culminate with Mr. Brooks sharing his experience in how he overcame dyslexia to become a best-selling author and sought-after expert on post-apocalyptic survival strategies.
In its sixth year, the Park Academy annual auction is proud to host Mr. Brooks as our keynote speaker. Using fictional metaphor (like zombie lore) and historical events to prompt serious discourse on large-scale problem-solving, Mr. Brooks explores new ways to attack old problems and new concerns. On stage, as with his writing, Mr. Brooks tackles the tougher questions, like what are the threads that hold society together, and what’s really at stake when those threads are stressed, loosed, or torn.
The son of Hollywood legends Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft, Max Brooks is dedicated to challenging and encouraging systems and institutions to think outside the box when problem solving (a common strength of people with dyslexia!).
“An Evening with Max Brooks” will support the educational environment at Park Academy that allows students who struggle, to thrive.
