The Non-Motivational Speaker Series Returns October 23

The Non-Motivational Speaker Series returns to New York's Lower East Side on Thursday, October 23, at 8 p.m. Curated and hosted by Adam Rosen, this monthly event features an above-average lineup of decidedly non-motivating authorities, each presenting views alternative and overlooked on matters of head-scratching, navel-gazing import.
