Manuals for Living
September 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
How does one go looking for the good life? What practices, rituals, philosophical or aesthetic perspectives will open our eyes to the paths we seek? In “Models for Living,” Unitarian Universalist minister Ana Levy-Lyons offers a fresh reinterpretation of the Ten Commandments; author Michael Robbins suggests the high-brow/low-brow mixture of poetry and pop music; lawyer and writer Justin Jamail draws upon the New York School poets; and medievalist Jacqueline de Weever captures something paradoxically ephemeral and pragmatic in images of exquisite flora. Explore life’s mysteries and possibilities with these engaging writers and friends. Fr. John Denaro, rector of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, will be the moderator.
“Models for Living” is a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Event presented by the Forum @ St. Ann’s.
