Free and open to the public. Book sale and signing handled by Eight Cousins Bookstore, Falmouth
Please RSVP in advance to help us plan.
Another in FJC’s series of JBC author talks, and one not to be missed. Writer Sasha Sagan, inspired by her viral essay “Lessons of Immortality and Mortality From My Father Carl Sagan,” offers us a book that celebrates the marvels of life on Earth that require no faith in order to be believed. When Sasha became a mother, she reconnected not only with the wisdom of her parents, but also with the powerful messages she saw at the heart of religious observances. Drawing on both Jewish and Christian backgrounds, she and her husband became determined to create new secular rituals that would instill both joy and wonder in their daughter. Sasha shares those rituals to inspire others to create their own.
Ample, accessible parking in the 7 Hatchville Road parking lot. Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome.
