Rhode Island Mensa
Sponsors a Providence Athenaeum Salon
Rhode Island Mensa will sponsor a salon event at the Providence Athenaeum on
Friday, March 24, from 5 to 7 PM.
The evening's speaker will be Dr. Abby Smith Rumsey who will discuss her latest book
When We Are No More: How Digital Memory is Shaping our Future.
She writes on her web page that this book explores human memory from pre-history to the present.
The proliferation of information and the scarcity of human attention demand new ways of
understanding memory. Data storage is different from memory.
The Providence Athenaeum is an independent, member-supported library and cultural center
located at 251 Benefit Street, a block from the Brown University campus. The salon is free
and open to the public. Light appetizers, wine and soft drinks will be served.
