This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

Cathy N. Davidson, Professor of English and Interdisciplinary Studies at Duke University, discusses and signs her latest book, Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn. Using cutting-edge research on the brain, Davidson shows how "attention blindness" has shaped our lives and produced one of our society’s great challenges: incorporating the digital age into our outdated schools and workplaces. Now You See It is an optimistic argument for a bold embrace of our connected, collaborative future.

This event is presented in partnership with the Illinois Science Council.
