An Evening with Lou Marinoff

Please join us on Friday, September 21 for a talk by philosopher and best-selling author Lou Marinoff, who will discuss themes from The Inner Philosopher: Conversations on Philosophy's Transformative Power, forthcoming in September from Dialogue Path Press. In The Inner Philosopher, Marinoff and his co-author Daisaku Ikeda contend that philosophy should do nothing less than help us draw forth the inner strength to face life's challenges and hardships. The talk, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for:

Friday, September 21, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
With a reception at 6:30pm and a book signing to follow.
