Location: Temple Emanu-El
The Second Mountain by New York Times columnist David Brooks is a thought-provoking commentary on the rampant individualism that has become the defining ethos of our culture. Brooks explores what it means to lead a meaningful life, suggesting that the first mountain an individual faces is about building up the ego, defining the self, and striving for success; the second mountain is about shedding the ego, planting yourself amid those who need, and giving yourself away. Brooks has spent more than five years thinking about how to give life meaning after worldly success failed to fulfill. This new book is the product of his personal quest for a joyful life.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Location: First United Methodist Church
Esteemed scientist and historian Jared Diamond presents a brilliant new theory of how and why some nations recover from trauma and others do not. Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis reveals how seven countries have successfully survived defining upheavals in the recent past through a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation, and identifies patterns in the way that these distinct nations recovered from calamity. Looking ahead to the future, Diamond investigates whether the United States and the world are squandering their natural advantages, on a path toward political conflict and decline. Diamond won a Pulitzer Prize for his internationally bestselling book Guns, Germs, and Steel.
