Event description

Description

At some point, everyone has to wrestle with personal belief and one's orientation to the universe. Whether addressing origins or destiny, what lies inside or what's "out there" - it's a good bet that those who've come before have something to offer. In this club, we dive into the best wisdom we can find, across faith traditions, guided by author & journalist Nick Shindo Street.

We're reading James Baldwin's essential The Fire Next Time, which includes his essay on the experience of African Americans with both Christianity and Islam and the famous letter to his nephew, about how to be a black man in America.

HOW IT WORKS:

All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore.

You can get your ticket one of two ways: either thru the link on this page (*we'll ship the book to you!) - OR buy your ticket in the store, just look for our book club display (near the book tunnel).

*If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com -- Do not try to pick up the book in person.

Nick Shindo Street is the senior writer at the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture. He studied religious ethics at Oberlin College and the Candler School of Theology at Emory University. After a decade working as a religion editor in the world of academic publishing, he returned to graduate school in journalism at USC. His writing on religion, spirituality, politics and culture has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Tricycle, the Wall Street Journal, Boom California, Global Post, Nieman Reports, Religion & Politics, Huffington Post, the Jewish Journal, Patheos, and Religion Dispatches. A longtime student of Zen meditation, he grew up in Alabama. His parents--both of them rebellious children of Southern Baptist preachers--instilled in him a love of nature and a deep wariness of religious orthodoxy. Wonder, awe and curiosity are his biggest turn-ons.
