August 17 • Hygge-The Danish Art of Happiness by Marie Tourell Soderberg. Hosted by Deb Flint. This book explains the Scandinavian concept (pronounced hue-guh) that makes Denmark the “happiest nation on earth”. There is no equivalent word in the English language...hygge means a moment of happiness where warmth or togetherness is found in the little things in life. The author suggests that in this day and age it’s more important than ever to relax and make time for hygge. See if you agree! Sept. 21 • An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison. Hosted by Bill Zirinsky. This book is a memoir of manic depression that is medically knowledgeable, deeply human, and beautifully written. Jamison offers her story from the dual perspective of the healer and the healed. Kay Redfield Jamison will be in Ann Arbor on October 9th to give the Annual Prechter Lecture for the U-M Depression Center. Her keynote speech is open to the public and free. For more information, see the ad on page 93. Oct. 19 • The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. Hosted by Deb Flint. If past efforts to declutter your home have resulted in piles of papers and tangles of clothes reappearing, it’s time to take tidying to a new level. Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo presents the Kon-Mari method to clear clutter and enjoy the magic of a tidy home. Nov. 9 • Training in Tenderness: Buddhist Teachings on Tsewa by Dzigar Kongtrul. Hosted by Deb Flint or Bill Zirinsky. This little book is a call to a revolution of heart. In Tibetan Buddhism one of the most essential qualities of enlightenment is tsewa-a form of warm energy and openness of heart. It is the warmth we experience through empathy with others, especially those closest to us. Learn to awaken the most powerful force we have in a fractured world—an open heart. Dec. 21 • How to be Married: What I Learned from Real Women on Five Continents about Building a Happy Marriage by Jo Piazza. Hosted by Deb Flint. How does an independent, strong willed feminist become someone’s partner all the time? How do you make a marriage work in a world where you no longer need to be married? Written with humor and insight, the author shares her first year of marriage and her quest for answers, and along the way shares a framework that will help others keep marriages strong.
