VIRTUAL: Live via Zoom!
Wednesday, March 9, 7:30 PM ET
Sherry Turkle presents The Empathy Diaries: A Memoir
In conversation with Dave Eggers

For the paperback launch of MIT psychologist and acclaimed author Sherry Turkle’s best-selling The Empathy Diaries, Turkle is joined by award-winning author, publisher, and activist Dave Eggers. In his classic novel The Circle, and now, in his acclaimed new novel, The Every, Eggers asks what becomes of self and society in a digital world. For decades, Turkle has explored technology, empathy, and ethics in her social scientific research. Now, in The Empathy Diaries, she ties together that work and her coming-of-age story in a vivid and poignant memoir of love and work. Eggers and Turkle join us (virtually) live on the Greenlight virtual stage for a conversation about The Empathy Diaries and the many themes that tie together their work.
