August Book Club-Quiet:The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't StopTalking

  • August 19, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Beth's House

2012 New York Times bestseller by Susan Cain; At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

 

The meeting will be held at Beth's house in Oregon. An email with the address will be sent a day or two before the event.

    Sorry...work, sick dog, and a few other things have come up that prevent me from attending. Too bad as I think the discussion would be very interesting.
