What makes us remember? Why do we forget? And what, exactly, is a memory? Two Norwegian sisters, one a neuropsychologist and the other an acclaimed writer, discuss their book «Adventures in Memory: the Science and Secrets of Remembering and Forgetting» which interweaves history, research, and personal stories, taking readers on a captivating exploration of the evolving understanding of the science of memory.

Throughout the conversation, Ylva, the neuropsychologist, will weigh in with fascinating insights into the science of remembering: how it works in the brain, why it often fails, and how our memories can be tricked and altered, without our knowledge.

Meanwhile, Hilde, the novelist, will muse on some of the larger questions surrounding this fascinating faculty: what memory means to us, how it affects our personal identities and life stories, and the similarities between writing and remembering.

Hosted by award-winning science writer, Alanna Mitchell.

Travel assistance provided by Norla.

— Location: Atrium of the Toronto Reference Library

There will be book sales by Glad Day and a book signing after the talk.

This event is part of the Appel Salon series at the TPL, where we present discussions and talks with the most exciting writers from around the world in our premier literary venue, the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon.
