Just the Facts

March 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm

For their March book, “Just the Facts” Nonfiction Book Discussion Group will be reading A Deadly Wandering: A Tale of Tragedy and Redemption in the Age of Attention by Matt Richtel. New York Times journalist Richtel interweaves the cutting-edge science of attention with the tensely plotted story of a mysterious car accident and its aftermath to answer some of the defining questions of our time: What is technology doing to us? Can our minds keep up with the pace of change? How can we find balance? Richtel parallels the accident with scientific finding regarding human attention and the impact of technology on our brains. We will discuss this book on Thursday, March 16 at 6:30 pm.
