“Virginia Postrel’s cultural research and dynamic presentation captivated our team of PR, creative and interactive professionals....Any organization involved in creative thinking should consider Virginia as a speaker.”
—Elizabeth Cornelius, Vice President of Account Service, HCK2 Partners
"Virginia Postrel in person is just as dynamic and engaging as she is in print. Her topics are fresh and important but typically neglected by other public intellectuals. She will get your audience thinking hard about things that matter, and will leave them optimistic about the future."
—Edward J. Lopez, Professor of Economics and BB&T Distinguished Professor of Capitalism, Western Carolina University
