Sherry Turkle: Reclaiming Conversation
Left Bank Books and The Lee Institute at Ladue Chapel welcome renowned media scholar Sherry Turkle, who will sign and discuss her new book, "Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age." A reception will follow the conversation, Q&A, and booksigning.
$19 admits one person and includes one paperback copy of "Reclaiming Conversation." $24 admits two people, includes one paperback copy of "Reclaiming Conversation," and $5 will be rebatable towards the purchase of a second copy at the event.
Sherry Turkle--renowned media scholar, tenured professor at MIT, and author of the New York Times bestseller Alone Together--has spent the last thirty years studying the psychology of our relationship with technology. Our technological universe has led to a flight from conversation where we sacrifice face-to-face exchanges for mere connection. Based on years of research, Turkle argues in "Reclaiming Conversation" that our relationship with technology endangers our capacity for empathy. When conversation is under assault, so too are our families, our friendships, our intimate relationships, our classrooms, our boardrooms, and our very sense of our selves.
