AUTUMN LIGHT: OBSERVING THE SEASONS AND CHANGES IN JAPAN

The bestselling author, whose most recent work is Autumn Light: A Season of Fire and Farewells (Knopf, 2019) will be joined by our Curator Emeritus, Diane Durston, for a conversation about the Japanese sense of seasonality, living with the cycles of the seasons, and learning to accept the constancy of change.

Whether he is guiding readers and listeners to distant lands or encouraging them to explore unknown terrain in their own hearts, Iyer eloquently speaks to the need to open up space in our crowded lives and remember what we care about most. The event takes place as a conversation with the Garden’s Curator Emeritus, Diane Durston, about the Japanese sense of seasonality, living with the cycles of the seasons, and learning to accept the constancy of change.

The book — an account of a loss in the family that leads Iyer to contemplate how to hold on to what we love, when living things are ephemeral and part of the cycle of seasons and nature – will be on sale at the event.
