Book Discussion: Book of Joy | January 24, 2020

Chautauqua-Wawasee and the Syracuse Public Library are planning a discussion on “The Book of Joy:  Lasting Happiness in a World of Change”.

In April 2015, Archbishop Desmond Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama’s home in India, to celebrate His Holiness’s 80th birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question:  How do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?

They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.

Books are available through the Evergreen system; copies are available for checkout at your local Public Library.
