January Book Groups (Monday, January 23 and Wednesday, January 25)

Nonfiction Book Group

The Nonfiction Book Group will meet in January for a discussion of How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy by Jenny Odell.

“Nothing is harder to do these days than nothing. But in a world where our value is determined by our 24/7 data productivity, doing nothing may be our most important form of resistance. So argues artist and critic Jenny Odell in this field guide to doing nothing (at least as capitalism defines it). Odell sees our attention as the most precious–and overdrawn–resource we have.”

Date/Time: Monday, January 23, 6 – 7:30pm

Location: Virtual via Zoom
