Online Conversation | Breaking Bread with the Dead, with Alan Jacobs

Online Conversation | Breaking Bread with the Dead
with Alan Jacobs

We were delighted to welcome back Dr. Alan Jacobs to discuss his new book: Breaking Bread with the Dead: a Reader’s Guide to a More Tranquil Mind. In this new work, Jacobs encourages his readers to engage with voices of the past to gain wisdom and internal ballast for contemporary conundrums.

We hope you enjoy this conversation considering the virtues of interrogating the writings of the wise and pursuing a tranquil mind through reading.

Special thanks to this event’s sponsors:

The painting is The Vegetable Garden by Anton Mauve, 1888
The song is Joy Pours Out (Instrumental) by Christy Nockels
