How attached are you to your smartphone? Have you noticed that your face-to-face conversations have been curtailed or diminished with the advent of this robust technology? Or do you espouse that your smartphone has enabled you to better keep up with your friends and family?
Join us on Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 2pm to 4pm at The Java Room (14 Littleton Road, Chelmsford, Ma.) for our next Moveable Feast book discussion of Sherry Turkle’s Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age. Turkle, an MIT professor, clinical psychologist, and sociologist has been studying the effects of technology on our relationships for over 30 years. Her 2012 TED Talk, “Connected, but alone” has been viewed 4.2 million times, and was related to her previous book Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other. To borrow a copy of Reclaiming Conversation ask a staff member at our Circulation Desk. See you soon for a vibrant discussion!
