Michael Lemonick, author of "The Perpetual Now"

The Perpetual Now by Michael Lemonick

Award-winning science journalist Michael Lemonick will talk about his new book, The Perpetual Now: A Story of Amnesia, Memory and Love. Lemonick tells the story of an artist whose ability to remember was shattered by encephalitis. Research into her tragic case has provided deep insights into learning and consciousness. Bestselling author Richard Preston calls The Perpetual Now a "fascinating and artful book that takes us deep into the most mysterious labyrinth in nature, the human brain."
