We'll also be holding a bake sale, so save some room for dessert or be prepared to take some home.. We aim to reach as many people as possible in our pursuit of a kinder, brighter vegan future. This fundraiser will help to keep admission to the event free and accessible to all. We thank the vegan members of the Bonnie Brae team for hosting this event and working hard to serve us some delicious pizza, that favorite food which is almost synonymous with cheese. What better way to celebrate Vegan Dairy!
For our March 26 meeting we'll discuss THE SHALLOWS: WHAT THE INTERNET IS DOING TO OUR BRAINS, by Nicholas Carr (W. W. Norton, 2011). Or read his later title THE GLASS CAGE: AUTOMATION AND US. Homemade treats will be served. You need not have attended a previous discussion to join us for this one. We hope to see you there! ----------------------- THE SHALLOWS: “This is a book to shake up the world.” —Ann Patchett “Essential reading about our Internet Age.” —New York Times Book Review “A book everyone should read.” —American Scientist Is Google making us stupid? When Nicholas Carr posed that question in a celebrated Atlantic essay, he tapped into a well of anxiety about how the Internet is changing us. He also crystallized one of the most important debates of our time: As we enjoy the internet’s bounties, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply? With The Shallows, a finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in nonfiction and a New York Times bestseller, Carr expands his argument into the most compelling exploration of the net’s intellectual and cultural consequences yet published. The Shallows is, writes Slate, “a Silent Spring for the literary mind.” Nicholas Carr is an acclaimed writer on technology, economics, and culture whose books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages. He is the Richmond Visiting Professor at Williams College. His 2014 book THE GLASS CAGE: AUTOMATION AND US, which the New York Review of Books called a “chastening meditation on the human future,” examines the personal and social consequences of our ever growing dependency on computers, robots, and apps.
