After coming across her adolescent journal in middle age, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Ehrenreich set out to reconstruct her lifelong search for “truth” in the universe. Her memoir Living With a Wild God: A Nonbeliever’s Search for the Truth about Everything is the result of this reconstruction. An atheist and rationalist at heart, her latest work chronicles her path from adolescence through today, unraveling her search for science and personal belief system in the process. The author of 14 books, including the bestselling Nickel and Dimed, the story of Ehrenreich’s quest for knowledge will have you reflecting on your own philosophical journey, the meaning of life, and the very definition of spirituality.

She’ll appear in conversation with KUOW’s Marcie Sillman, co-host of The Record.
Presented by: Town Hall and Elliott Bay Book Company, as part of the Arts & Culture series. Sponsored by City Arts.
