Book Club | Dalai Lama's and Desmond Tutu's The Book of Joy


In this nonfiction, the authors discuss the challenges of living a joyful life. Both of the authors faced oppression and exile and yet have been able to maintain their compassion and forgiveness despite this. The theme of the book is that fear, anger, and hatred exist internally as much as externally. The 14th and current Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyatso, a spiritual leader of the Tibetan people.  Desmond Tutu is a South African Anglican cleric and theologian known for his work as an anti-apartheid and human rights activist. He was the Bishop of Johannesburg from 1985 to 1986 and then the Archbishop of Cape Town from 1986 to 1996, in both cases being the first black man to hold the position. Theologically, he sought to fuse ideas from black theology with African theology.

Author Reading | Mirror Shoulder Signal: Longing to Go Back


Sonja is ready to get on with her life. She’s over forty now, and the Swedish crime novels she translates are losing their fascination. She sees a masseuse, tries to reconnect with her sister, and is finally learning to drive. But under the overbearing gaze of her driving instructor, Sonja is unable to shift gears for herself. And her vertigo, which she has always carefully hidden, has begun to manifest at the worst possible moments. Sonja keeps remembering the dramatic landscapes of her childhood—the endless sky, the whooper swans, the rye fields—and longs to go back.  With author Dorthe Nors.

Concert | France Rocks Festival: Piers Faccini


The English-born, France-based singer-songwriter Piers Faccini, who creates “captivating, quietly insistent” music (Wall Street Journal) in the vein of Nick Drake infused with a global outlook, brings his newest project. Inspired by the rich medieval history of his Mediterranean surroundings, I Dreamed an Island is a fascinating collection of songs drawing on Western, Arabic, and Byzantine influences. Imagining how a Provençal madrigal might sound closer to the mode of an Arabic makan, or how words in English could be put to melodies sung with microtones of a Turkish taqsim, Faccini crosses folk and world music genres, transforming John Martyn into Ali Farka Touré, Pentangle into a Tunisian wedding band, and a Sicilian ciaccona into a Tuareg desert riff.
