| Book Discussion and “How To” Series || Cognitive Science Book Discussion Series|
The Cognitive Science book discussion series concludes on
January 9th as we discuss the 3rd and final book in our series. FICTION: Sloan, Robin (2013) Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Picador, New York, NY.
It's a novel, but it deals (colorfully and rivetingly) with the clash between so-called Old Knowledge (books) and New Knowledge (internet and other virtual forms of communication). Not only that, it's a great read--funny, swashbuckling, and serious by turns.
We encourage you to access the book and read it prior to the session. Of course, you can always join the conversation and later read the book. Purchase the book Here
