Book Launch: Sherry Turkle presents The Empathy Diaries
In conversation with Honor Moore
Sherry Turkle, MIT psychologist and bestselling author of Reclaiming Conversation and Alone Together, reflects on her coming-of-age and path-blazing career in her new memoir, The Empathy Diaries. Turkle charts her interest in empathy across her life, from her turbulent childhood in post-war Brooklyn, to her college days at Radcliffe and in Paris, to her struggles to achieve tenure at MIT as a woman and a humanist, offering a master class in finding meaning through a life's work. For decades, Turkle has shown how we remake ourselves in the mirror of our machines; here, she illuminates our present search for authentic connection in a time of uncharted challenges. Honor Moore, acclaimed author of the memoirs Our Revolution and The Bishop’s Daughter, joins Turkle in conversation at this virtual book launch!
