Adult Book Discussion

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain.
This non-fiction title is about those of us who prefer listening to speaking, who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion, and who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled as quiet, it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society - from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Copies of this title will be available to borrow about a month before the discussion and may be picked up at the library circulation desk.
