Blake Street House Speaker Series

With Stephen Morrison, former publisher of Picador, the Center curates an ongoing author speaker series at the wellness center Blake Street House, known better as BlakeST, in Bentonville, Arkansas. BlakeST was started by Stueart Walton and Tom Walton, grandsons of Sam Walton of Walmart fame, to encourage mind–body connections as a lifelong process. Past speakers’ topics have included the future of work, artificial intelligence, the art of memoir writing, self‑care, relationship styles, and more.
