The library’s Real World Book Club is opening for business January 17 with a discussion of Daniel H. Pink’s When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing
. This new club is a morphing of the Science and Technology Book Club we had in 2018 and will include science books as well as history, biography and other non-fiction titles.
All the conversations will begin at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month in the Business, Science and Technology Meeting Room at the Main Library. Dates and titles through June are:
February 21 – How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us about Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence by Michael Pollan
March 21 – The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan
April 18 – Grant by Ron Chernow
May 16 – The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth by Michio Kaku
June 20 – Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover
I hope you will grab copies of these books and join the conversations, but if you haven’t read them and want to learn about them, you will certainly be welcome.
