Barbara Ehrenreich / Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever's Search for the Truth about Everything
First Congregational Church of Berkeley
Berkeley, CA
Share this event:



In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and determined to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny -- or as she later learned to call them, "mystical" -- experiences.

A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search as the reader will be as well. Here, Ehrenreich brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. LIVING WITH A WILD GOD will spark a lively and heated conversation about religion and spirituality, science and morality, and the "meaning of life."

Barbara Ehrenreich is an award-winning columnist and essayist and is the author of 21 books, including Nickel and Dimed, Dancing in the Streets, and Bright-Sided. Ehrenreich's work has also appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Time, Harper's, Mother Jones, The Nation, and The New Republic, among numerous other publications worldwide. A surprising departure from most of Ehrenreich's familiar concerns, LIVING WITH A WILD GOD tackles the ultimate questions in a startlingly fresh and personal way.

Ehrenreich will be in conversation with Deirdre English, the director of the Felker Magazine Center, at the Graduate School of Journalism, a former Editor in Chief of Mother Jones magazine, and the co -author, with Barbara Ehrenreich, of the recently re-issued For Her Own Good, Two Centuries of the Doctors' Advice to Women.
