A self-described “reader, writer, interestingness hunter-gatherer and curious mind at large,” Maria Popova is the creative mind behind Brain Pickings, an immensely popular online compendium of treasures spanning art, science, poetry, design, philosophy, history, anthropology and more. With more than one million monthly readers and a six-figure Twitter following, the site explores how different disciplines illuminate one another to glean some insight into that grand question of how to live, and how to live well. Popova has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, Wired (U.K) and Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab and is a MIT Futures of Entertainment Fellow.
