The Details

Writers on a New England Stage @ The Historic Theater

David Brooks

David Brooks

The renowned columnist and NY Times #1 bestselling author will discuss his highly anticipated and provocative new work, The Road to Character, an elegant weaving of politics, spirituality, psychology, and confessional that confronts our current definitions of success and worth and urges us to redefine how we understand the meaning of fulfillment.  Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales and focus on the deeper values that should inform our lives.  Don’t miss hearing from him.
