The Second Mountain: David Brooks

Wednesday, May 8, 2019 | 7:00pm

One of the nation’s leading writers and commentators, David Brooks shares an inspiring exploration of what it means to live a meaningful life. Most of us, over the course of our lives, will make four big commitments: to a spouse and family, a vocation, a philosophy or faith, and a community. Our personal fulfillment depends on how well we fuse these commitments into one coherent whole. In "The Second Mountain," Brooks looks at people--from Dostoyevsky to Holocaust survivor Etty Hillesum to African educational entrepreneur Fred Swaniker--who have lived joyous committed lives to understand how we can begin to integrate our commitments into one overriding purpose.
