Indian Business and Professional Women host book reading

Submitted By Shubhangi Vaidya

This year, Indian Business and Professional Women (IBPC) are hosting their annual book reading event featuring Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains. This book explores the intellectual and cultural consequences of the Internet on human minds based on neuro-scientific evidences. Carr has brilliantly established how we are increasingly being proficient at scanning and skimming, at the expense of our capacity to concentrate, contemplate and reflect.

ÒAs we enjoy the NetÕs bounties, are we sacrificing our mindÕs ability to ponder and think?Ó The author has addressed this thought-provoking question that will lead to an insightful and exciting debate!

Join us and listen to the authorÕs views in person, along with a distinguished panel:
Dr. Elaine Brady, Exec. Dir: Net Worth Recovery, Inc.
Michele Bolton, Ph.D; Founding Partner: ExecutivEdge of Silicon Valley

IBPC presents author Nicholas Carr
Sunday, Mar 2
2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
India Community Center (ICC)
