FREE Public Book Talk: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age
Manship Artists Residency + Studios is hosting a free public book talk given by 2019 Manship Resident Artist, Bina Venkataraman in conversation with local celeb and seasoned interviewer Christopher Lydon at the Shalin Liu Performance Center on Friday, February 28 from 7 to 8:30 pm.
A former journalist and senior adviser on climate change for the Obama White House, Bina Venkataraman set out around the world to investigate what makes foresight possible. THE OPTIMIST’S TELESCOPE: Thinking Ahead in a Reckless Age is the stunning result of her research. It is at once a trailblazing exploration of how we can plan better for our future, a pressing call-to-action, and a critical lesson on our biological truths. Through cutting edge science and true stories from around the world, THE OPTIMIST’S TELESCOPE dispels myths about human nature while revealing the practices that we can adopt in our lives, organizations, and communities to think ahead in order to thrive.
