Diversity Lecture Series: Susan Cain

Susan CainBy Lisa M. Rabey
Systems & Web Librarian

Susan Cain, author and lecturer, will be presenting her lecture, Quiet, The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, on March 13 at Fountain Street Church.

Cain, a self-described introvert and a former lawyer, recently appeared at TED discussing the power of introversion. Her book on this topic,  based on intensive research in psychology and neurobiology, became a national best seller. It has also ignited a conversation about the power of introverts, their place in society and culture, and how they are valued. Cain cites famous examples to back up her argument and also argues that our society has created a bias towards introverts, which is tempering their creativity, talent, and success.
