Adora Svitak is an American writer, public speaker, former child prodigy and activist.
Original broadcast date: June 10, 2016. We usually get wiser with age, but that doesn't mean we have to grow up to wise up. This hour, TED speakers explore what it means to find wisdom at every stage of life. Guests include journalist Joshua Prager, writer Adora Svitak, conservationist Boyd Varty, advocate Tony Porter, and psychiatrist Robert Waldinger.
I interviewed Adora Svitak after being introduced by her mother and watching her TED presentation. I’m writing a book about 21st century literacies and thought that a 12 year old would give a good perspective. Which she does.
