Lunchtime Book Talk with Howie Axelrod
The Stars in Our Pockets is a personal exploration of "inner climate change"-- how digital life is changing our orientation in the world: our sense of place, time, identity, and, of course, how we talk to each other.
So far, the book has received starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist. The Boston Globe described the book this way: "Axelrod makes a compelling argument for drawing a new kind of map, one that helps us as we search and stumble between the borderlines of our digital and physical worlds...he meditates on the ways our screens are changing our relationship to time, space, and each other, while dipping into philosophy, astronomy, neuroscience, and poetry. Like his memoir, it’s an intimate book; he discusses big themes, big ideas, but the feel is as though you are leaning in close across a table in a dimly lit space."
Join us in meeting the author, as he talks about the book, and the role of the digital in our lives. The talk will be held at Loyola Hall 318 on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, from 12:30 to 1:30. Lunch will be provided. RSVP to email@example.com.
