Please join us for a very special evening in the bookstore with Rob Schwartz, son of beloved Morrie Schwartz from Tuesdays with Morrie. Rob will be in conversation with Charleston podcaster and host of The Good Mood Show Matt O’Neill to discuss Rob’s new book, The Wisdom of Morrie.
About The Wisdom of Morrie:
From the eponymous subject of the beloved classic Tuesdays with Morrie comes an insightful, poignant masterpiece on staying vibrant and connected for life.
Who am I really? What have I done? What is important and meaningful to me? What difference does it make that I have lived? What does it mean to be truly human, and where am I on that scale?
Morrie Schwartz, the beloved subject of the classic, multimillion-copy number one bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie, explores these questions and many more in this profound, poetic, and poignant masterpiece of living and aging joyfully and creatively. Later life can be filled with many challenges, but it can also be one of the most beautiful and rewarding passages in anyone’s lifetime. Morrie draws on his experiences as a social psychologist, teacher, father, friend, and sage to offer us a road map to navigate our futures.
A great companion to Tuesdays with Morrie or the perfect introduction to Morrie’s thoughtful philosophies, The Wisdom of Morrie is filled with empathic insights, stories, anecdotes, and advice, told in Morrie’s reassuring, calm, and timeless voice. Let The Wisdom of Morrie be your guide in exploring deep questions of how to live and how to love.
