Join us for a fun and interesting evening of discussion on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.  We will explore “pushing the limits of connection with “Thunderstruck” by Erik Larson while enjoying refreshments and a videotaped interview with the author.  Discussion will focus on the ways that people connect across time and across space.  We have an inherent need to reach out to others, to feel that we’ve been heard and seen, and to feel a connection with people and the larger world around us. Whether through art, technology or the restoration of land for future generations, we each find ways to “push the limits of connection”.

You can pick up a free copy of the book at the Orland Free Library or join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book yet!

Thank you to all of the attendees at our February program for the interesting discussion!

Rural Gateways, Pushing the Limits of Science

Informal, open discussions centered on how humans interact with science in our everyday lives, with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Come to share ideas, food and community!

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. The program is the work of a team of library professionals, scientists, and filmmakers from organizations including Dartmouth College, the Association for Rural and Small Libraries, the Califa Library Group, Public Library Association, Dawson Media Group, Institute for Learning Innovations, Goodman Research Group, and Oregon State University.
