Byrdcliffe Forum Author Talk with Sparrow
Time: Oct 5, 2020 05:00 PM

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.

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.
