OLIVER BURKEMAN at Town Hall Seattle
Co-presented with the TOWN HALL CENTER FOR CIVIC LIFE. A writer at one of the world's foremost newspapers, London's The Guardian, Oliver Burkeman writes a weekly psychology column, "This Will Change Your Life," that is one of the paper's most popular features. He visits tonight with his book, The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking (Faber & Faber). "The Antidote is a gem. Countering a self-help tradition in which 'positive thinking' too often takes the place of actual thinking, Oliver Burkeman returns our attention to several of philosophy's deeper traditions and does so with a light hand and a wry sense of humor. You'll come away from this book enrichedand, yes, even a little happier." - Daniel H. Pink. $5 tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 p.m., or in advance via www.strangertickets.com. Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca). Preferred seating for Town Hall members.
