Kathryn Schulz Speaker Biography


Kathryn Schulz is a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error.

She won a National Magazine Award and a Pulitzer Prize in 2015 for “The Really Big One,” an article about seismic risk in the Pacific Northwest. Lost & Found grew out of “Losing Streak,” which was originally published in The New Yorker and later anthologized in The Best American Essays.

Her other essays and reporting have appeared in The Best American Science and Nature Writing, The Best American Travel Writing, and The Best American Food Writing.

A native of Ohio, she lives with her family on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The Origins of Error: how our senses, our minds, and our society can mislead us, and how we can learn to anticipate and prevent those mistakes

Why most of us have such negative feelings about wrongness, and how that attitude affects the way we educate our kids, run our companies, and resolve our conflicts - whether with family members, coworkers, neighbors, or nations

How embracing error is, paradoxically, the best way to prevent mistakes - including in high-stakes domains where errors can be financially, materially, emotionally or physically costly

Why error is such a crucial engine of innovation, and how accepting and understanding our fallibility can make us more creative, more empathetic, and more forgiving, toward ourselves as well as toward other people
