As we roll out the red carpet and usher in a new semester, the Honors Literature Project has begun reading and discussing a new book. Joshua Foer’s Moonwalking with Einstein is an interesting deep dive into a world that most people don’t spend much time or effort investigating, yet it shapes our understanding of who we are and how the world works: our memory. Here is some praise for this title:

“Absolutely phenomenal… Part of the beauty of this book is that it makes clear how memory and understanding are not two different things. Building up the ability to reason and the ability to retain information go hand in hand… The book reminds us that we all start off with pretty much the same tools for the most part, and we can be intentional about strengthening them, or not.”—Bill Gates
