Micheal Flaherty, president and co-founder of Walden Media, will speak at a Brigham Young University forum Tuesday, March 15, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center.
Walden Media’s mission is to recapture imagination through the development and production of family films and literature. It has financed and produced a number of films, such as “The Chronicles of Narnia” series, “Charlotte’s Web,” “Bridge to Terabithia” and “Holes.” Through its publishing division, Walden Media has also co-published a number of award-winning books, including Mike Lupica’s “Comeback Kids” series and the New York Times bestseller and Newbery-winner “Savvy” by Ingrid Law.
Flaherty is a member of the Global Advisory Council of Vision 360, an organization dedicated to supporting and founding churches across the country. Prior to founding Walden Media in 2001, he designed innovative curricula for the Boston Public School System. He graduated from Tufts University.
