in conversation with Brooke Warner


Conversations with Authors is our free virtual event series! Join us every Saturday and Sunday at 7:00pm ET/4:00pm PT for a new chat with a different author.

 

Friends,

Brooke and I want to thank you for taking the time to join our Book Passage conversation. And a huge thank you to Book Passage as well for being such a constant resource of us all.

Three books I highly recommend that have been transformative for me are:

  • Dark Wood to White Rose by the Jungian Analyst Helen Luke
  • Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
  • A Poet's Journal by the Greek poet George Seferis.

Each will hold tools for the times. We hope you are safe and well.

—Many blessings, Mark and Brooke
