    City Arts & Lectures Author Michael Lewis Last year, author Michael Lewis spent six months with President Obama. Lewis turned that unprecedented access -- in the Oval Office, on the basketball court, and even in the private quarters of the White House -- into a fascinating and intimate portrait for Vanity Fair magazine. A contributing editor to the magazine, Lewis is known for meticulous research on far reaching subjects. His most recent book, "Boomerang: The Meltdown Tour," chronicles the fiscal recklessness in both Europe and the U.S. that led to the current international debt crisis. Past works include "Liars Poker," "The Blind Side," "Moneyball," and "The Big Short." He appeared in conversation with Dacher Keltner on May 1, 2013 at the Nourse Theatre.
