In a moment when it feels like the planet and our society are being pushed to the brink, how do we get out of bed in the morning, much less make something worthwhile out of a day? Ross Gay (The Book of Delights) and Pam Houston (Deep Creek) make a conscious effort to choose optimism over apocalypse. Join them for a discussion of how we can lift up each other, and ourselves, in times of cataclysmic despair, drawing on our humanity to seek out hope and joy.
