Sean Murphy and Natalie Goldberg at Bookworks: May 21
New Mexico writers Sean Murphy and Natalie Goldberg read at a free author event at Bookworks on May 21.
Sean Murphy (aka Mr Cheap!) will be reading and talking about the new edition of his book One Bird, One Stone: 108 Contemporary Zen Stories at Bookworks on Tuesday, May 21 at 7pm. The 2013 edition has a new introduction by Natalie Goldberg (the best-selling author of books including Writing Down the Bones, Wild Mind and the new book The True Secret of Writing) and Goldberg will be presenting at the event too.
Of course I’m biased as I’m married to author Sean Murphy, but I think that One Bird One Stone is one of his best books, full of beautiful Zen wisdom and moving stories, as well as Zen humor.
The book describes notable encounters between American Zen teachers and students, moments of insight and tons of quotable quotes. The book also covers the history of Zen in America and includes interviews with and stories about important figures like Philip Kapleau, Bernie Glassman, Gary Snyder, and Walter Nowick.
The Sean Murphy with Natalie Goldberg author reading and talk takes place:
