Book Discussion Series - Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Date: January 9, 2015  
Time: 2:00-3:00 pm ET - free to all
Presenters: Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, TLT Group and others

This is book #3 in our series which focuses on applying cognitive science & brain research to teaching/learning principles, strategies, practices.

Book #3 is fiction written by Robin Sloan. (2013)  Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Picador, New York, NY. It's a novel which deals (colorfully and rivetingly) with the clash between so-called Old Knowledge (books) and New Knowledge (internet and other virtual forms of communication). Not only that, it's a great read--funny, swashbuckling, and serious by turns.

    We encourage you to access the book and read it prior to the session. Of course, you can always join the conversation and later read the book. Purchase the book HERE
