GUEST READER: Joseph Coté reads from “Travels with Epicurus” for Friday Explorations Read-Aloud
Friday, October 9, 2020 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Guest reader Joseph Coté will read a selection from Travels with Epicurus by Daniel Klein on the library’s Facebook Page.
Summary: Advice on achieving a fulfilling old age from one of the bestselling authors of Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . .
After being advised by his dentist to get tooth implants, Daniel Klein decides to stick with his dentures and instead use the money to make a trip to the Greek island Hydra and discover the secrets of aging happily. Drawing on the inspiring lives of his Greek friends and philosophers ranging from Epicurus to Sartre, Klein uncovers the simple pleasures that are available late in life, as well as the refined pleasures that only a mature mind can fully appreciate.
A travel book, a witty and accessible meditation, and an optimistic guide to living well, Travels with Epicurus is a delightful jaunt to the Aegean and through the terrain of old age that only a free spirit like Klein could lead.
