Event description


Join LifeArt Studio for an exploration of words, flesh, love, faith and hope by Peabody Award-winning author Krista Tippett.

This January, renowned journalist and interviewer Krista Tippett will host the annual GladdeningLight Symposium in Winter Park – an exploration of the transcendent elements of art with film critic A.O. Scott, composer Gustavo Santaolalla and poet Billy Collins.

In anticipation of this event, LifeArt Studio and GladdeningLight have partnered on a three-part book discussion series focused on Tippett's latest book, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living.

This beautifully written book offers an overview of Tippett's extensive experience as an interviewer and her intelligent distillations of the wisdom and insight of her conversation partners. She synthesizes her findings into five elegant themes that form the book's structure: WORDS, FLESH, LOVE, FAITH and HOPE.

If you love art, deep thought and great conversation...join the LifeArt Studio community for this group discussion! Deepen your knowledge about this important thinker, writer and gifted interviewer.
