In his new book of non-fiction, Solitude: A Singular Life in a Crowded World, Governor General’s Award-winner, Michael Harris, BA’02, explores the profound emotional and intellectual benefits of being alone. He examines why our experience of solitude has become so impoverished and guides readers away from a life of ceaseless pings toward a balanced media diet. Please join Harris and moderator, Maureen Medved, MFA’94, for a brief reading, conversation, Q&A, and reception.
Harris will sign copies of the book, which will be available for purchase on-site.
Light refreshments will be available.
Presented in partnership between alumni UBC and the UBC Faculty of Arts.
