Batavia’s Books Between Bites Welcomes Roger Breisch Today
Batavia's popular noontime book program, Books Between Bites, welcomes Roger Breisch, executive director of the Batavia Chamber of Commerce, on Thursday, November 15th to give a review of the book
“Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation” by Steven Johnson. The monthly series is held at the Batavia Public Library, 10 S. Batavia Avenue, from noon to 1 p.m.
By reviewing the history of innovation, Steven Johnson teases out characteristics of an environment in which good ideas can emerge. If groups and organizations lack creativity, Johnson suggests great ways to spur innovation. Breisch will discuss the wealth of information in this book and help participants explore where they just might find their next great idea.
The public is invited to attend these free programs and reservations are not required. They are held in the large community room located on the main level of the Batavia Public Library. Parking is available in the lot just south and adjacent to the library.
Attendees are invited to bring their lunch and eat as they enjoy the program and discussion. Lunch items, beverages and baked goods can be purchased at 10 South Coffee House, located just inside the library and adjacent to the meeting room. To pre-order for pick-up just before the program, please call 630-406-8870.
