Historian Abby Smith Rumsey will discuss her new book, “When We Are No More: How digital memory is shaping our future.” She writes that our personal and cultural memories are intimately intertwined, shaped and sometimes controlled by political forces and economic interests. In the age of digital abundance, Rumsey says it’s harder, not easier, to secure important historical archives for future generations.

A book sale follows with Readers Bookstore.
