You can pick up a copy of the book at the library. Audiobooks, e-books, and e-audio books are available in the libary system.
Pushing the Limits of Tradition
Tuesday, November 14 from 6-7 PM
As humans, we often cling to the familiar, and sometimes great dynasties result from children following in their parents’ footsteps. The human body can also benefit from the repetition of familiar motions and routines, creating the physical tradition of muscle memory.
We will explore how humans push the limits of tradition with Emily St. John Mandel’s national bestseller Station Eleven and Kari Zhe-Heimerman, Librarian for the Sciences at LeMoyne College. When a global pandemic ends the modern way of life in present-day America, how do traditions like art and culture survive?
Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing, and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
