Shane O’Mara’s In Praise of Walking: A New Scientific Exploration brilliantly describes the science behind walking and its effects on memory, creativity, cognition, writing, planning, contemplation, problem-solving, community, health, and social connections. This book will change your perspective on the value of walking in your personal and professional life. Join us for a discussion of the book and ideas about walkability, accessibility, and walking-based classroom assignments. An added bonus: the author’s style will engage readers from any discipline. The first 18 graduate students or faculty who register will receive a free copy of the book.
