Brent Sverdloff Presents: The Art of the Memory Palace 

When: Thu., May 18, 6:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $5
2500 years ago, the acclaimed Greek orator Simonides gifted to posterity the Method of Loci, known today as the Memory Palace Technique. Discover the fascinating history of how this system was embraced—and transformed—by Roman politicians, Medieval mystics, and Renaissance scholars, and why it died a needless death with the advent of Puritanism.
