Will Schwalbe - Books for Living

Upcoming Event
Monday, January 9, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Schwalbe’s moving The End of Your Life Book Club showed how reading can bridge difficult terrain and bring people together. Now the widely published journalist, founder and CEO of Cookstr.com looks at how books can introduce us to ourselves. Schwalbe’s reading list ranges from classics to popular mysteries; in brief, engaging essays, he recounts who or what led him to the book at hand, what he found in it, and where it took him next. Expanding on the personal meaning of his reading, he meditates on the works’ larger themes, considering friendship in the light of The Little Prince, our relationship to the wider world as suggested in Bird by Bird, and the meaning of calling it quits à la “Bartleby, The Scrivener.”
