January 7 6:00pm Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown
True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.
February 4 6:00pm The Dim White Light
From the author of Black Iron Mercy comes the extraordinary journey of a young man searching for identity and purpose against the backdrop of the American Civil War.
EZ Webster of the 14th Indiana Regiment isn’t himself today. He wasn’t himself yesterday, either. In fact, Private Webster hasn’t occupied his own body for some time now, waking up in the skin of another soldier and inhabiting his body just long enough to get killed, and then leaping to another unfamiliar form, only to get killed again. With each leap of existence, EZ brings the memories and faculties of the previous man with him, able to conjure the wisdoms of all he’s possessed at any time, gaining scholarship and aptitude with each jaunt. But EZ isn’t interested in this earthly version of immortality. All he wants is to be reunited with his own skin and bones. If this isn’t an option, he’d settle for permanence in death.
