The jointly sponsored CFI/SHSNY Book Club will meet on Thursday, May 28, from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the Muhlenberg Library, 209 West 23rd Street (at 7th Ave.), 3rd Floor, to discuss What Have You Changed Your Mind About? Today's Leading Minds Rethink Everything , a collection of essays from the world's top thinkers edited by John Brockman that is now a book but was first published on Edge.org .

Even genuises change their minds sometimes. Edge, the influential online intellectual salon, recently asked 150 high-powered thinkers to discuss their most telling misteps and reconsiderations. The answers are brilliant, eye-opening, fascinating, sometimes shocking, and certain to kick-start countless passionate debates. Read Steven Pinker on human evolution, Richard Dawkins on the mysteries of courtship, Sam Harris on the indifference of Mother Nature, Nassim Nicholas Taleb on the irrelevance of probability, Alan Alda on the existence of god, and more.

Join us even if you haven't finished reading. The CFI/SHSNY Book Club is open to all ... and free! Every CFI/SHSNY Book Club Meet is a Book Swap, too. Bring the books gathering dust on your shelves and take your pick of other readers' castaways. The leftovers? Donated to the Muhlenberg.
