Copies of the book will be available at the Main Library a month before the discussion.

Science journalist Joshua Foer’s best-selling title "Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art & Science of Remembering Everything" was named one of the best books of 2011 by, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. Amazon says it “recounts Foer's yearlong quest to improve his memory under the tutelage of top mental athletes. He draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of remembering, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human memory. From the United States Memory Championship to deep within the author's own mind, this is an electrifying work of journalism that reminds us that, in every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories.”

Join us to discuss and connect as part of One Book, One Oak Park, a new summer reading experience aimed at bringing us all together over one great title.
