Current book selection for May 22nd, 2017
The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World brings together 2 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu who have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships—or, as they would say, because of them—they are two of the most joyful people on the planet.
In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?
