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.

Recurring Events:

The following events occur monthly.  Contact the Program Coordinator for details.
