Join us for a book discussion over a drink at Akronym Brewing. This month's title is "How to Do Nothing" by Jenny Odell. The Library does not provide food and drink. Registration required.
Meet the second Thursday evening of every month at Akronym Brewing to think and drink like the ancient Greek philosophers!
In March, we will read and discuss "How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy" by Jenny Odell. In this New York Times Bestseller, Odell advocates for shifting our attention away from the profit-driven economy through personal creative exploration and mindful activities like bird-watching.
