SYRACUSE — Chautauqua-Wawasee and Syracuse Public Library are planning a discussion on “The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a World of Change”, to be held Jan. 24, from 1 – 2 p.m. at the Syracuse Public Library at 115 E. Main St. in Syracuse.
The book’s authors are Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, said a news release from Syracuse Public Library.
In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama’s home in India, to celebrate His Holiness’s 80th 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, said the news release
They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.
Books are available through the Evergreen system; extra copies are available for checkout at the Syracuse Public Library.
