Ted Talks @ Your Library

What are Ted Talks?

Experts in a particular field, be it art or science, social development or oceanography, give a brief (5-25 minute) talk about their passion. Their passion is contagious and opens up new horizons and ways of thinking. They lead our minds down rabbit holes we didn’t know were there. Best of all, they are great entertainment. They are meant to reach just every day folk.

When: The 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month
Time: 1pm
Format: By Zoom (full zoom details listed below)

This is meant to be a time to socialize and spark interesting conversation. It is not meant to be a teaching tool and certainly not intended to guide anyone’s perspective. It is meant to be fun while stimulating our thinking and adding to the reservoir of knowledge each of us enjoy.

Upcoming Talks:

May 17
Topic: Susan Pinker: The secret to living longer may be your social life

Date: May 17 | 1pm

The Italian island of Sardinia has more than six times as many centenarians as the mainland and ten times as many as North America. Why? According to psychologist Susan Pinker, it’s not a sunny disposition or a low-fat, gluten-free diet that keeps the islanders healthy — it’s their emphasis on close personal relationships and face-to-face interactions. Learn more about super longevity as Pinker explains what it takes to live to 100 and beyond.
