We Are Not Robots: Richard Louv on Reconnecting with Our Humanity
Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
San Diego, CA
This event will sell out!
What does it mean to be human? Are we less human than we were before technology, before connectedness, before we started spending so much time indoors and in front of electronic screens?
Join the San Diego Museum of Man as we partner with Write Out Loud's "The Big Read" to bring award-winning journalist and author Richard Louv to the museum Saturday, April 20.
Starting with the explosive and controversial themes in Ray Bradbury's novel Fahrenheit 451, Richard will explain a heartening vision of the future in which our lives are as immersed in nature as they are in technology.
His way to a happy and healthier society is through reconnecting with the natural world around us, a theme he explored in his book The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder and in Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder.
Books will be for sale during the event and a book signing will follow.
Read Richard Louv's bio and find out more about his ideas and books on his website.
