Join us as James Geary - currently a Neiman Fellow at Harvard, and TEDGlobal 2009 speaker - presents "I Is an Other: The Secret Life of Metaphor and How It Shapes the Way We See the World." Aphorism enthusiast and author James Geary waxes on a fascinating fixture of human language: the metaphor. Friend of scribes from Aristotle to Elvis, metaphor can subtly influence the decisions we make, Geary says. Lost jobs, wayward lovers, wars and famine -- come to think of it, just about any of life's curveballs -- there's an aphorism for it, and James Geary's got it. His presentation is fun and informative! There will be juggling! After the book talk, Mr. Geary will take questions from the audience, then sign books. (TooFondOfBooks)
