Is the Digital Revolution Affecting How We Look at Ourselves?

Alecia Orsini

UMass Dartmouth Professor Robert Waxler joins WCAI's Mindy Todd to talk about his book The Risk of Reading: How Literature Helps Us to Understand Ourselves and the World.  Waxler says the digital revolution is changing our ability to self reflect, and that the reading of literature matters to us as individuals and to our society as a whole.

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
