The Power of Two

Washington, District of Columbia / September 8, 2014

The Atlantic's July cover story author Joshua Wolf Shenk joined Alix Spiegel to consider the question of what it means to be creative—and how many people it takes.

Two is better than one, the old saying goes—and in the fifth event in The Atlantic’s ongoing series with the historic Sixth & I Synagogue, July cover story author Joshua Wolf Shenk will proves it.

During a conversation with NPR's Alix Spiegel, Shenk questioned and discussed the definition of creativity itself.
