Michael J. Fox in Conversation With Willie Geist / Ticketed Event

December 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage sidekick of Doc Brown in Back to the Future; as Alex P. Keaton in Family Ties; as Mike Flaherty in Spin City; and through numerous other movie roles and guest appearances on shows such as The Good Wife and Curb Your Enthusiasm. Diagnosed at age 29, Fox is equally engaged in Parkinson’s advocacy work, raising global awareness of the disease and helping find a cure through The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the world’s leading nonprofit funder of PD science. In his new memoir, No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality (Flatiron), Fox shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Fox’s trademark sense of humor, No Time Like the Future is a moving account of resilience, hope, fear and mortality — and a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses. Fox will be joined in conversation by Willie Geist, host of NBC News’ Sunday Today With Willie Geist and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Please note: This is a ticketed event. Purchasing a copy of No Time Like the Future ($17.99) entitles you to attend the virtual event with Fox and Geist on Tuesday, December 7, at 4pm (PT). After you’ve purchased the book, the publisher (Flatiron Books/Macmillan) will register you for the Zoom event and send you an access code prior to the event’s start.
