Hanging Out: The Radical Power of Killing Time

Digital Event
January 10: 7:00 pm

With the introduction of AI and constant Zoom meetings, our lives have become more fractured andsymbol of two hands using American Sign Language isolated. In Hanging Out: The Radical Power of Killing Time, author Sheila Liming shows us what we have lost to the frenetic pace of digital life, and how to get it back.

This event is presented virtually in partnership with the Goodrich Memorial Library.
