Maggie Jackson, an award-winning author and former Boston Globe columnist is joining Young Media Critics on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 5 p.m.

Ms. Jackson is known for her penetrating coverage of social issues, especially technology’s impact on humanity. Her essays and articles also have appeared in The New York Times, Business Week, Utne, and on National Public Radio.

Her acclaimed book, Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age, jumpstarted our global conversation on the steep costs of fragmenting our attention. With a foreword by Bill McKibben, the book reveals the astonishing scientific discoveries that can help us rekindle our powers of focus in a world of overload. The book is a “richly detailed and passionately argued … account of the travails facing an ADD society” (Publishers Weekly) and “concentrates the mind on a real problem of modern life” (Wall Street Journal).
