Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Quiet: the power of introverts... coverTitle to be discussed: Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking, by Susan Cain.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, November 11, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. Although they're often labeled "quiet," it's to introverts like Gandhi, Einstein and Rosa Parks that we owe many of the great contributions to society. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so."
