with Christian McEwan

November 3, 2023

A Friday evening reading with Christian McEwen

Come hear Christian read from her new book, In Praise of Listening. A Q&A will follow, and copies of the book will be available for sale.

Her voice is music to the ears! 

“McEwen’s poetic prose reveals what is possible when we learn to listen with more than our ears.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Change:Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World.
