The Pember Library presents PUSHING THE LIMITS, a reading, viewing, and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Unleash your mind…explore and get involved in ideas about knowledge, connections, nature and survival in a 4-part series for adults at the Pember Library in Granville.
Dylan O’Leary, a local science expert will join us to view two short videos and discuss the topics and recommended books. We will have several copies of the books available for checkout at the library before each program, but you do not need to read the book to attend the program. Each program promises to be engaging and thought-provoking, and we hope you will join us!
The third in the series will be held on Sunday, March 19 at 1:00 PM. This public program leads our community on an exploration of the theme of survival. As humans, we’re driven to find a way to survive, whether trapped in a life threatening situation or competing in a sport. Our instincts urge us to push our limits to make it through,
one way or another.
In subsequent discussions, we will explore how humans push the limits of nature with TC Boyle’s book “When the Killing’s Done.”
