Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to U.S. Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives. On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship.
Aside from The Jesup Memorial Library’s 30,000 plus collection, a fine arts exhibit showing off local artists, and a microfilm reader, they hold excellent events. The best being something most adult book lovers want, adult story time.
