Charles Schwab revolutionized finance and investing for millions of Americans.  Schwab will share insights and revelations from his new memoir, Invested: Changing Forever the Way Americans Invest, sharing his passion to have Main Street participate in the growing economy as investors and owners, not only earners. He'll open up about his dyslexia, and how he worked around and ultimately embraced it. He'll share insights about how he reinvented his company after the dot-com meltdown of 2000, and how the company's focus on managing risk protected it and its clients during the financial crisis of 2008, propelling its growth. He'll discuss his active philanthropy and his passion for contemporary art.
