LIVE, In-Person Read-Aloud for Adults with Joseph Coté for World Read-Aloud Day: Travels with Epicurus by Daniel Klein

Wednesday, February 7 @ 2:30 pm 3:30 pm

Join us along with Joseph Coté of our long-running Friday Explorations Read Aloud program LIVE and IN-PERSON in the Picker Room for a special read-aloud event for adults on Wednesday, February 7, at 2:30 PM to celebrate World Read-Aloud Day.

Joseph will read from the book Travels with Epicurus by Daniel Klein, a London Sunday Times Bestseller and one of NPR’s Best Books of 2012.

“An insightful meditation.” –The New York Times Book Review

Summary: Daniel Klein journeys to the Greek island of Hydra to discover the secrets of ageing happily. Drawing on the lives of octagenarian Greek locals, as well as philosophers ranging from Epicurus to Sartre, he uncovers the pleasures that are available only late in life. An escapist travel book, a witty meditation, and an optimistic guide to living well, this is a delightful jaunt through the terrain of old age, led by a funny and uniquely perceptive modern-day sage.
