The Institute for Public Knowledge and Public Books invite you to join us for a discussion with Maria PopovaClay ShirkySharon Marcus and Caitlin Zaloom on how we choose what's worth our attention in an age of limitless choice. 

Maria Popova, the editor of Brainpickingsrefers to her selection of online material as “curating interestingness,” and says that her site is “bringing you things you didn’t know you were interested in — until you are.” Our panelists are among the most interesting curators of contemporary culture, and our discussion will explore how and why they do their work.

This discussion will take place on Friday, February 28, at 6PM on the 5th floor of 20 Cooper Square.

For more information and to RSVP, please visit our event page.
