Add this Event to Calendar 12/11/2019 06:30 PM 12/11/2019 08:00 PM TED Talk A/V Book Club

Join us at the Oakmont Library on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for our new TED Talk A/V Book Club!  

In this unique book club, we will be choosing from a series of TED Books and watching the companion talk at every meeting.  These books, on a variety of scientific, educational, and health related topics, are short enough to read in one sitting, but full of big ideas!  Each book has a companion talk that is less than 20 minutes.  At our meetings, we will watch the talk and then discuss the book and the talk together!  From the TED site: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. 

No book this month: TED Talk: Jose Miguel Sokoloff: How Christmas lights helped guerrillas put down their guns
