Northern Essex Community College professor Deirdre Budzyna is scheduled to visit the Reading Public Library, 64 Middlesex Ave., at 10 a.m. Wednesday to give a presentation on multiple intelligence theory. Developed in 1983 by Harvard University professor Howard Gardner, the theory posits that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on IQ testing, is far too limited. Gardner proposed that eight different intelligences, from linguistic to spatial and interpersonal intelligences, account for the range of human potential in both children and adults. Participants will identify their strongest intelligence and learn how it impacts their abilities in all aspects of their lives, including school, work, and family. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Reading Public Library as part of the LiveWires: Lifelong Learning in the Library series. For more information, call the library at 781-944-0840.
