Cambridge Forum welcomes KRISTA TIPPETT for a discussion of her book Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living.
Tippett is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and New York Times–bestselling author. In 2014, she received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” She is the host of the public radio program and podcast On Being and Curator of the Civil Conversations Project.
In Becoming Wise, Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from her radio conversations in their many dimensions into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind. The book is a master class in living, curated by Tippett and accompanied by a delightfully ecumenical dream team of teaching faculty.
This event is free and open to the public.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
