Before you figure out how to measure a year in 525,600 minutes or become a great success in 10,000 hours, you must get through the first 1,000 days.
After three decades at The Wall Street Journal as a foreign correspondent, Roger Thurow now serves as a senior fellow on global food and agriculture for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and recently authored The First 1,000 Days: A Crucial Time for Mothers and Children -- and the World. On Wednesday, October 12, at 7 p.m., join him for an exciting interview as he explores through storytelling why the first 1,000 days go far beyond mother and child as one of the most critical times for the world.
