Tickets available here

Presented by Jenara Nerenberg & The Neurodiversity Project. Opening the evening is Steve Silberman, the bestselling author of Neurotribes. Pegasus Books is the onsite bookseller.



Oliver Sacks features prominently in the recent books and photos of renowned writer and photographer, Bill Hayes, who was also Sacks' partner. The two fell in love when Sacks was 75 years old and the stories of their explorations and partnership live on in Hayes' best-selling Insomniac City and How New York Breaks Your Heart, a brand new collection of photos. In this rare event, Hayes will share insights, stories, and photos from his journey with Oliver -- and Hayes' discovery of everyday ordinary love and magic on the streets of New York City. Hayes is also the Creative Director of the Oliver Sacks Foundation and co-editor of Dr. Sacks’ posthumously published work.

Opening the evening is Steve Silberman, the bestselling author of Neurotribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, for which Oliver Sacks wrote the foreword.

This event will likely sell out and attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets EARLY.

Hayes will be in conversation with The Neurodiversity Project's Jenara Nerenberg, a celebrated science, arts, and innovation reporter for outlets including the UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center and Fast Company magazine and is author of the forthcoming book, Divergent Mind.

A book signing will follow the main stage event, where attendees can interact with author Bill Hayes. This is a very special, rare opportunity for the San Francisco Bay Area community of writers, photographers, artists, physicians, scientists, and fans of Bill Hayes and Oliver Sacks.

Purchase TIX here.
