Author Talk: Lisa Genova, Remember

Author Talk: Lisa Genova, Remember

Presented by Nantucket Atheneum at Online/Virtual Space

Best selling author and Harvard Neuroscientist Lisa Genova offers a fascinating exploration of the intricacies of how we remember, why we forget, and what we can do to protect our memories.

In Remember, Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them. She explains why some forgotten memories are temporarily inaccessible or erased forever and why some are built to exist for only a few seconds (like a passcode) while others can last a lifetime (your wedding day).

Lisa Genova has written the novels Still Alice, Love Anthony, Left Neglected, and Every Note Played. Remember is her first work of nonfiction. Genova holds a PhD in neuroscience from Harvard University and speaks worldwide on neurological diseases. Her TED talk, 'What You Can Do To Prevent Alzheimer's', has been viewed over 2 million times.
