Known as "The Father of Information Theory," Claude Shannon is considered one of the 20th century's most important scientists. His insights stand behind every computer built, email sent, video streamed, and webpage loaded. A Mind at Play offers an inquisitive and vibrant look into Shannon's singular life including his time working for Bell Labs - the feature of Morven's current exhibition, Ma Bell: The Mother of Invention in New Jersey. Join authors Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman for a discussion of the book, Claude Shannon, and the groundbreaking work he pioneered.

This program will be hybrid, offered both in-person and online. Doors open for the in-person event in the Stockton Education Center at 6:00 p.m. For virtual attendees, a Zoom webinar link will be shared via email prior to the event. The museum will be open from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. where you may meet the curators of the Ma Bell exhibition, Elizabeth Allan and Jesse Gordon, inside the galleries.
