Mark Bauerlein, author of The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future (Or, Don’t Trust Anyone Under 30) will talk about “The New Generation Gap” at Central Library tonight (Wed, Nov 9), from 7-8 pm. Bauerlein, an Emory University professor, asks the question “What is the main reason adolescents go online?
