At the Brooklyn Public Library, Grand Army Plaza. What is an emotion? Is it something you feel inside, or is it something you do or show to other people, or is it something else? Can emotions be rational or irrational? What would life be like if we didn’t have any emotions? Popular movies like Inside Out, TV shows like Star Trek, and comic books like How to Pass as Human offer different answers to these questions. This event will look at some of these sources, and participants will sharpen our own views of emotions by writing, talking, and acting out the reasons for and against them.
