Will Schwalbe, "Books for Living"
New York Times best-selling author Will Schwalb comes to The Regulator for a reading and booksigning of his new book, Books for Living -- an inspiring and magical exploration of the power of books to shape our lives in an era of constant connectivity and an impassioned recommendation of specific books that can help guide us through our daily lives.
“Schwalbe’s ‘manifesto for readers’ is not about his favorite books but those that helped him when he had a need. Written in a chatty, conversational style, the book is thematically organized by a wide variety of needs: slowing down, searching, trusting, napping, praying, etc…. In an age when the number of readers is declining, a delightful book like this might just snare a few new recruits.” —Kirkus Reviews
