Will Schwalbe for a Celebration of Reading with Books for Living!

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Will Schwalbe, Bestselling Author of The End of Your Life Book Club will Present his New Hardcover Books for Living.  This Complimentary OPEN House Event is Sponsored by Rainy Day Books in collaboration with The Kansas City Public Library, Mid-Continent Public Library, The Writers Place, Literacy KC, Reach Out & Read KC, Turn the Page KC, Lead to Read KC, and Johnson County Library.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Will Schwalbe has worked in publishing; digital media, as the founder and CEO of Cookstr.com; and as a journalist, writing for various publications, including The New York Times and the South China Morning Post.  He is the Author of The New York Times Bestseller The End of Your Life Book Club and coauthor, with David Shipley, of Send: Why People Email So Badly and How to Do It Better.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  An inspiring and magical exploration of the power of books to shape our lives in an era of constant connectivity. Why is it that we read? Is it to pass time? To learn something new? To escape from reality? For Will Schwalbe, reading is a way to entertain himself but also to make sense of the world, to become a better person, and to find the answers to the big (and small) questions about how to live his life. In this delightful celebration of reading, Schwalbe invites us along on his quest for books that speak to the specific challenges of living in our modern world, with all its noise and distractions. In each chapter, he discusses a particular book what brought him to it (or vice versa), the people in his life he associates with it, and how it became a part of his understanding of himself in the world. These books span centuries and genres (from classic works of adult and children's literature to contemporary thrillers and even cookbooks), and each one relates to the questions and concerns we all share. Throughout, Schwalbe focuses on the way certain books can help us honor those we ve loved and lost, and also figure out how to live each day more fully. Rich with stories and recommendations, Books for Living is a treasure for everyone who loves books and loves to hear the answer to the question: What are you reading?
