This Saturday: Michael B. Crawford at the Fall Literary Series

An Evening with Matthew B. Crawford

Saturday Nov 05 2016 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

In conversation with Paul G. Doerksen and signing The World Beyond Your Head: On Becoming an Individual in an Age of Distraction . Co-presented by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Fall Literary Series.

The author of the bestselling Shop Class As Soulcraft investigates the challenge of mastering one’s own mind. We often complain about our fractured mental lives and feel beset by outside forces that destroy our focus and disrupt our peace of mind. Any defence against this, Crawford argues, requires that we reckon with the way attention sculpts the self.
