Pushing the Limits of Transformation
Monday, December 11 from 6-7 PM
How are humans driven to transform the world around us, and how do we often transform ourselves in the process? We will explore how humans push the limits of transformation with Hope Jahren’s national bestseller Lab Girl and Sherilyn Smith, Professor of Biology at LeMoyne College.
Lab Girl is the fascinating memoir by American geochemist, geobiologist, and professor Hope Jahren. She explores the life cycle of trees, comparing it to her own transformation from a quiet childhood in bleak Minnesota to running a busy lab in Hawaii, weaving in observations on family, friendship, bipolar disorder, and the state of women in science. Lab Girl won the 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award.
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.
