Best Selling Author Appears at the Lenox Library on Sunday,
February 15th at 4:00 pm
Our second season of the Distinguished Lecture Series continues with a talk by author, humorist and philosopher Daniel Klein. Join the co-author of the best selling Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy through Jokes
as he discusses
“My Latest Novel – I’m Serious This Time!”
Daniel Klein may be getting serious but that doesn’t mean that he is any less entertaining or that he has abandoned his fascination with the intersection of philosophy and daily life. Come and get an advance glimpse of life in life in fictional Grandview Massachusetts. This quintessential image of a bucolic New England town harbors Wendell deVries and his family – average people soon to experience extraordinary events.
The History of Now presents philosophical questions disguised in a small town family drama. As one reviewer has noted: “As a portrayal of small town life, The History of Now is reminiscent of Richard Russo’s glorious novels about rural America. Its everyday encounters ring true, its dialogue glitters with wit, and its seamlessly integrated storylines create a consummate picture of one small place ineluctably connected to all places”
The Distinguished Lecture Series has been organized and is hosted by Prof. Jeremy Yudkin of Lenox.
