Two-Weekend Intensive: Reading as a Writer—Alain de Botton’s Lived and Lyrical Nonfiction

$345.00 Members
$405.00 Non-members

With his 2016 novel, A Course in Love, Alain de Botton returned to fiction after a pause marked by a goodly number of nonfiction works that suggest that this thing called life has much yet to convey; that delving and ruminating in ways we imagine the prerogative of philosophy departments has a vital role in this shared space of an existence. In this two-weekend intensive, we’ll dive into excerpts of some of his finest non-fiction works—The Architecture of Happiness, Religion for Atheists, The Art of Travel—with an eye toward turning our attention to our own lives, loves, and communities with refreshed, compassionate, writerly intent. Although we’ll be focusing on nonfiction work, writers of all genres are welcome.
