In conversation with Jia Tolentino
Launch of Saving Time
Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore

Part of Unbound

What if you don’t have time to spend? How is our painful relationship to time inextricably connected not only to persisting social inequities but to the climate crisis, existential dread, and a lethal fatalism? How might we imagine a world not centered on work, the office clock, or the profit motive? In this intimate evening of conversation, multi-disciplinary artist and author Jenny Odell explores these questions and more with New Yorker staff writer and author Jia Tolentino, offering different ways to experience time and find a more humane, responsive way of living. Celebrating the launch of Saving Time, her dazzling, subversive, and deeply hopeful book, The New York Times bestselling author of How to Do Nothing helps us see how we might take inspiration from pre-industrial cultures, ecological cues, and geological timescales to become stewards of different rhythms of life.
