An Evening with David Brooks

Thursday, May 7
7 p.m. in the Sanctuary


In today’s culture, the drive for external success and achievement is so fierce, there’s little time to cultivate inner depth. 

David Brooks, New York Times columnist and author of the new book, The Road to Character, will lead us in an exploration of true fulfillment in a society that emphasizes résumé virtues over eulogy virtues.

Brooks will discuss topics from The Road to Character, which looks at the lives of some of world’s greatest thinkers and leaders to illuminate how character is developed. There will be a time for audience Q&A, and book sales and signing. This event is free and open to the public.
