Learn how to find clarity in being unsure

Join us for a conversation between author Maggie Jackson and Library Director Diane Kresh, with an introduction by County Manager Mark Schwartz, to talk about Jackson's newest book, "Uncertain." Jackson argues that uncertainty is the mindset most needed in times of flux and a remarkable antidote to the narrow-mindedness of our day. In laboratories, political campaigns, and on the frontiers of artificial intelligence, Jackson meets the pioneers decoding the surprising gifts of being unsure. Step by step, the art and science of uncertainty reveal being unsure as a skill set for incisive thinking and day-to-day flourishing.
