The Art of Intentional Reading

With Amanda Petersen

How many books are stacked at the side of your bed or favorite chair? Ever read a book and love it yet once it is finished just move on the the next one? Are you looking for a way to not just read books but find a way to have their impact fold into your life?

This series will look at pieces of 3 books and use them to as a way to practice engaging our reading so it impacts our lives. In the process of engaging these books you will also learn ways to engage the books you love reading also.
Our first book was Krista Tippett's Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living.

In November we will look at David Whyte's Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words, and in January we will explore Joan Chittister's book Between the Dark and the Daylight: Embracing the Contradictions of Life.

Registration for each of the remaining sessions is $25. Please provide your own copies of the books.
