Event Details

Some of us were lucky enough to have one passionate, funny, inspiring English teacher who helped us fall in love with books. Add a lifetime of teaching Dharma — authentic, traditional approaches to meditation and awakening — and you get award-winning author Dean Sluyter.

Come hear Sluyter unpack the Dharma of more than twenty major writers, with droll humor and irreverent wisdom.

“What a wise and wonderful book, an exploration of some of our greatest writers through the seemingly simplest and most noble questions: Who am I? What am I doing here? What is the nature of consciousness? What energies and forces supersede my transient ones? Bravo!” — Ken Burns, filmmaker.

This event is co-sponsored by Books on the Common and will be held in-person at the Ridgefield Library.
