    What:    Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and National Humanities Medalist Krista Tippett will take the stage to discuss New York Times bestseller, BECOMING WISE: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living, a master class for living for a fractured world (now available in paperback for the first time). The heart of Tippett’s beloved radio program On Being has been to shine a light on the most extraordinary people at work on the big issues and questions of the day. With BECOMING WISE, the author plumbs these conversations and reflects on her own journey to identify virtues and tools for conscious living. In a time when fear and a lack of compassion color many of our nation’s public conversations, BECOMING WISE offers a powerful antidote. Krista Tippett imparts within the reader the strength to recognize the world as it is, and then to make it even better.
