Julian Hoffman - The Small Heart of Things
April 6, 2016 · Wednesday, 6:00PM
57th Street Books - Chicago, IL
Join us to see Julian Hoffman discuss his book The Small Heart of Things: Being at Home in a Beckoning World. Hannah Burnett, the Center's Communications Assistant, will join Julian in a conversation about nature, attention, and place.
In The Small Heart of Things, Julian Hoffman intimately examines the myriad ways in which connections to the natural world can be deepened through an equality of perception, whether it’s a caterpillar carrying its house of leaves, transhumant shepherds ranging high mountain pastures, a quail taking cover on an empty steppe, or a Turkmen family emigrating from Afghanistan to Istanbul. The narrative spans the common―and often contested―ground that supports human and natural communities alike, seeking the unsung stories that sustain us.
