Nonfiction Book Discussion: "Why Time Flies" by Alan Burdick

Event Type: *Adult
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 7/18/2019
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 11:00 AM
Description:
 In this witty and meditative exploration, award-winning author and New Yorker staff writer Alan Burdick takes readers on a personal quest to understand how time gets in us and why we perceive it the way we do. In the company of scientists, he visits the most accurate clock in the world (which exists only on paper); discovers that “now” actually happened a split-second ago; finds a twenty-fifth hour in the day; lives in the Arctic to lose all sense of time; and, for one fleeting moment in a neuroscientist’s lab, even makes time go backward. "Why Time Flies" is an instant classic, a vivid and intimate examination of the clocks that tick inside us all.
