Book Launch: Daniel Bergner presents The Mind and the Moon: My Brother's Story, the Science of Our Brains, and the Search for Our Psyches
In conversation with Robert Kolker
Greenlight welcomes Brooklyn-based, award-winning author and New York Times Magazine contributing writer Daniel Bergner to our Prospect Lefferts Gardens store for the launch of his path-charting new book, “a profound and powerful work of essential reporting” (New York Times). In The Mind and the Moon, Bergner asks profound questions about how we understand ourselves and the essential divide between the mind and the brain. Why is it that we still don’t understand how the mind works? And given all that we still don’t know, how can we make insightful, transformative choices about our psychiatric conditions? Bergner examines the evolution of how we treat our psyches and explores how to seek a deeper engagement with ourselves and one another. Join Bergner on Flatbush Ave. for a reading and conversation with acclaimed journalist and author Robert Kolker, followed by audience Q&A and a book signing.
