About the Free Event

Imagine your life a year from now. Two years. Five. What will it look like?

Imagine a life with less: less stuff, less clutter, less stress and debt and discontent. A life with fewer distractions.

Now imagine a life with more: more time, more meaningful relationships, more growth and contribution and contentment. A life of passion, unencumbered by the trappings of the chaotic world around you.

What you’re imagining is an intentional life. Not a perfect life, not even an easy life, but a simple one. What you're imagining is your life once you get the excess out of the way and start focusing on everything that remains.

Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, better known to their 2 million readers as The Minimalists, are embarking on a 100-city international tour to share their story of living with less and to celebrate their new book, Everything That Remains.

At age 30, Joshua and Ryan left their six-figure corporate careers, got rid of most of their material possessions, and began living more deliberately. Come listen to them speak about their journey into the simple life, followed by a short reading from their new book, a brief Q&A session, and an optional book signing.

Free admission. 90-minute event. Come as you are. (You are welcome to pick up a copy of their new book, but you aren't required to purchase anything.)

About the Book: Everything That Remains

"Like Henry David Thoreau, but with Wi-Fi." —Boston Globe

Twenty-something, suit-clad, and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn’t anymore.

Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism…and everything started to change.

That was five years ago. Since, Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt, and walked away from his six-figure career.

So, when everything was gone, what was left?

Not a how-to book, but a why-to book, Everything That Remains is the touching, surprising story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Heartrending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn’s best friend of twenty years.
