Financial Piggy Bank

Managing one's expenses and income can seem overwhelming.

But, if you know where to start -- what small steps you can take now that lead towards long term financial stability -- that makes all the difference. In this talk, you'll learn how to set targeted, realistic financial goals, and get concrete advice on how to work towards those goals.

Stephen Wendel from HelloWallet will provide some of the core lessons he's learned about how you can take control of your finances. In addition to the talk itself, each participant will be provided with free access to HelloWallet's financial guidance software.

Stephen is the Principal Scientist at HelloWallet, where he's worked for five years to develop applications that help users take control of their finances.

His recent book, Designing for Behavior Change, gives a step-by-step approach to applying behavioral economics to product development.

The Devil in the White City

Come join us in discussing the New York Times bestseller, The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson.

This book intertwines the histories of Daniel H. Burnham and others organizing the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, and Dr. H. H. Holmes, a serial killer who uses the fair as an opportunity to prey upon the crowds who come to the fair. Written in a narrative style, Larson focuses on the difficult work and many setbacks Burnham went through to make the fair happen and to conform it to his vision.

The murderer Holmes is a chilling figure, just as driven at Burnham but his work results in the death of at least 27 people at his hands.

Larson builds the suspense throughout the book, alternating chapters between his two narratives and weaving together the excitement around the fair and the horror of the murders. We're sure to have an exciting discussion about urban life, turn-of-the-century America and the beauty and depravity of which humanity is capable.
