Join the conversation on embracing uncertainty with author Maggie Jackson and journalist Marlissa Briggett


Barrington Books and Barrington Public Library proudly present acclaimed author Maggie Jackson, nominated for a National Book Award, at the launch of her latest book, Uncertain: The Wisdom and Wonder of Being Unsure. The event, which takes place this Saturday, November 18 at 3pm in the Salem Family Auditorium, will feature an insightful conversation between Jackson and Marlissa Briggett, founder of South Coast Almanac.

This scientific adventure into the critical mindset for human achievement promises to be enlightening. An award-winning author and journalist, Jackson is known for insightful writings on technology's impact on humanity, and she presents Uncertain as a beacon of inspiration, hailed as "beautiful, compelling, and urgently needed."
