Come hear the New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, talk about his new book, "Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected and Better at What You Do."
"Blue Mind" is a fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water. Nichols examines seas and oceans, lakes and rivers, even swimming pools and the contents of our bathtubs in a study that is both highly readable and rooted in real research. He is a marine biologist whose passion for our planet's water goes far beyond the classroom. He urges us to get closer to water, not only for our own sake but for the environment and a healthier future for us all. The blue mind of the book's title refers to the neurological and emotional changes our brains experience when we're close to water.
This event is free and open to the public. The Sailors Loft Bar opens at 6:30pm. Arrive early and enjoy a beverage on the upstairs deck beforehand, overlooking the SF Skyline. Dr. Nichols begins promptly at 7pm; and there will be a book signing immediately following the discussion.
This Meetup is also being offered to MU's North Bay Sailing as well as members of the Corinthian Yacht Club so there will be 100+ attendees.
The host of our Speaker’s Series is the Corinthian Yacht Club, located at the foot of Main Street in scenic Tiburon. Founded in 1886, its one of California’s oldest landmarks, with glorious “Colonial Revival” façade and majestic Corinthian columns. The evening will be a unique and beautiful opportunity to enjoy the renowned Corinthian Yacht Club and its breathtaking panoramic views of the City by the Bay.
