Isaac Lidsky is the author of a new book that details his experiences becoming a successful lawyer and tech entrepreneur as he was going blind.

Attorney and tech entrepreneur Isaac Lidsky joins us to discuss his book Eyes Wide Open: Overcoming Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a World That Can't See Clearly. As a child actor, Lidsky played series regular "Weasel" on “Saved by the Bell: The New Class.” At age 13, he learned that he would lose his sight entirely by age 25. Lidsky details how, as he was going blind, he graduated from Harvard Law School, served as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and started a tech company that sold for $230 million.

 Isaac Lidsky will appear at the Rubin Museum of Art for the talk "How To Perceive Without Sight" alongside neuroscientist Jacqueline Gottlieb on March 18 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $22. Info here.
