FOOD FOR THOUGHT: DINNER WITH CHRIS JENNINGS
Hancock, 6 - 8:30 p.m.
When a really smart historian is funny, lively, and a natural storyteller, magic can happen, especially when he talks about a generation of 19th century dreamers who took it upon themselves to confront the messiness and injustice of a rapidly changing world with a utopian response. In Paradise Now, Chris Jennings offers a spellbinding account of American utopianism and the bold, eccentric visions for the future put forward by five of history’s most influential utopian movements, including the Shakers. Praised by The New York Times as “uncommonly smart and beautifully written,” “absorbing” (Kirkus) and “engaging and witty” (San Francisco Chronicle), Paradise Now offers an infectious yet clear-eyed account of those who “lived on the cusp of an incandescent future,” perhaps gently nudging us to ask what sort of future we want to build for ourselves. TICKETS $100/$90 members, includes seasonal dinner by farm-to-table chef Brian Alberg, wine, and book. Sponsored by October Mountain Financial Advisors
