Program Description


Join us at noon on Thursday, February 9 for the first of our spring TED Talk lunch series.  We'll be watching and discussing "The benefits of not being a jerk to yourself" by Dan Harris.  In this talk, the former ABC News anchor shares about an on-air panic attack, an anonymous survey of friends, family and colleagues, and a years-long quest to improve his relationships with everyone - including himself.

What they are:  TED Talks are short, carefully prepared, idea-focused talks that foster learning, inspiration, and wonder.

Why we like 'em:  no matter the topic covered, these talks provoke conversation and inspire listeners to continue thinking and learning far after the presenter has finished

How to join:  First, register through our online events calendar or by calling 620-221-4470.  Second, bring your lunch to the library on the second Thursday of the month and join in as we watch a highly rated TED Talk and continue the conversation amongst ourselves

What else should I know?  Coffee and dessert are provided, but we need you to register so we can have enough!
