  • Saving Time: Discovering A Life Beyond the Clock

    Saving Time: Discovering A Life Beyond the Clock

    Odell, Jenny

    NEW FOR MARCH! Adult Nonfiction. “In How to Do Nothing, Odell wrote about the importance of disconnecting from the ‘attention economy’ to spend time in quiet contemplation. But what if you don’t have time to spend? In order to answer this seemingly simple question, Odell took a deep dive into the fundamental structure of our society and found that the clock we live by was built for profit, not people. Saving Time [imagines] a world not centered on work, the office clock, or the profit motive. If we can ‘save’ time by imagining a life, identity, and source of meaning outside these things, time might also save us.” Publisher description
