      UNBOUND BOOK CLUB: “THE DISCOVERY OF SLOWNESS” BY STEN NADOLNY

      6 p.m. Friday, April 27

      A quietly audacious historical novel that uses John Franklin’s life and career as the basis for some light-handed but absorbing philosophizing. The slowness of the title refers specifically to Franklin’s extremely subdued and careful manners, and his disconcerting habit of pausing for a long time before answering any question, but it also comes to stand for a certain way of seeing and responding to the world. Being fast means relying on pre-existing ideas and assumptions; being slow means being open to seeing the world in new ways.

      Included with Polar Nights admission. Book is available in the Anchorage Museum Store.
