Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting by Lisa Genova

NEW DATE: Tuesday, March 21
This program is rescheduled from Dec. 2022, which was postponed due to a weather-related closure.

Memory and Neuroscience

Explore concepts presented in the book Remember: The Science of Memory and the Art of Forgetting, written by neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova (Still Alice), who explains how memories are made and how we retrieve them. The group will discuss how memory may be impacted by meaning, emotion, sleep, stress, and context. Understanding the language of memory and how it functions may improve our ability to remember and help us feel less rattled when we forget.

Limited print copies of the book may be borrowed by request; contact your Library and ask for the “Intentional Aging book kit” to confirm availability. Additional copies may be available via the catalog or on the Libby app.
