Our guest speaker is Benjamin Bergen, Professor of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego. He’ll discuss research showing that humans are in fact quite resilient in the face of ambiguous language, from homophones (to, two, and too) to headlines (Children’s Stool Good For Use in Garden).

Join our celebration! Assembly also includes a reading, how a member is doing their best, and a moment of reflection. As usual, we'll rejoice by singing along with our band!

Be sure to register in advance. More details coming!
