Priya Parker, the author of The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters, is helping us take a deeper look at how we can create collective meaning in modern life, one gathering at a time. Not only do we discuss Priya’s amazing book, but we also talk about connecting with purpose when we cannot be physically together. She shares insight into her new podcast Together Apart which, is about gatherings in the time of Coronavirus. Then we look ahead to how we will gather after COVID-19.
Remember, The Stacks Book Club selection for April is Trust Exercise by Susan Choi, we will discuss the book with Brandon Taylor on April 29th.
