These were going to be in-person events. Now you get to wear your jammies to them. Isn't that great?
As you may know, my book, The Lines That Make Us, was chosen as the sole title for the Summer Reading Program put on by Redmond Library, the City of Redmond, and Microsoft. We're finally closing in on the end of summer, where we cap things off with four author events; this is the first.
On Saturday, 9/26 at 2 PM Pacific Time, I'll be giving a lecture called When We Become Islands– How Advancements in Communication Have Made Us Lonely People.
It's all about what young people don't know they're missing out on when they go out of their way to avoid talking to people, and some pretty compelling new research on what happens as a result... as well as some surprisingly easy solutions for moving forward together. IMPORTANT: This is the same speech I gave in February at MOHAI (image from that event above). It was a smash over there, and I can't wait to give it again. If you were there, you'd be forgiven for sitting this one out, or else throwing it on intermittently under the occasional cat video.
But if you missed it, now's your chance!
