A Zoom talk with Sparrow about his new books!
Saturday October 24 | 4:00PM - 5:00PM
Join us on Zoom for a talk with Sparrow about his new book Small Happiness and Other Epiphanies.
Happiness starts small; learn to recognize it.
It’s like a weed we see every day but cannot identify.
So begins Small Happiness & Other Epiphanies, a new book by Hudson Valley celebrity writer Sparrow, to be published on October 13, 2020, by Monkfish Book Publishing Company in Rhinebeck.
Originally conceived as a list of “eternal truths” for his young adult daughter, Sparrow’s new book is a quirky collection of humor, spiritual wisdom, memoir, observations of absurdity, and reasons to be happy—all of which turn out to resonate deeply in this time of upheaval.
Including a wide and wild array of subjects—such as the art of aroma; self-psychoanalysis; dancing as medicine; how to decorate with books, get equipped for winter or summer, compost poetically, conduct a wedding or host a party like no other; and age vigorously (including an interview with Sparrow’s 100-year-old father)—Sparrow has written an invaluable guidebook for remaining relatively sane, happy, and even innocent in the face of a global pandemic and political upheaval.
In fact, after reading Small Happiness, you may guiltlessly burn—or better yet, compost—all of your previously purchased self-help books.
A longtime resident of Phoenicia, Sparrow is once again running for President and blogging about it; he has been published in The New Yorker, The Sun, American Poetry Review, Chronogram, and Ulster Publishing’s newspapers, and is available for interviews.
