About The Event
In this dialogue, CCARE’s founder and director, Dr. James Doty, will ask Krista Tippett about her life’s work, her award winning program, On Being, and how compassion has played a role. This event is an hour-long dialogue followed by questions from the audience and a book signing. Krista’s recent paperback release, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living, will be available for purchase at the event. The talk will be recorded and posted to CCARE’s YouTube Channel and website several weeks after the event.
Doors open at 6:15pm.
About Krista Tippett
Krista Tippett is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and New York Times bestselling author. She created and hosts the public radio program and podcast On Being and curates the Civil Conversations Project, an emergent approach to the differences of our age. She received the 2013 National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence. On the air and in print, Ms. Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of every background to join her conversation about faith, ethics, and moral wisdom.” Krista was a journalist and diplomat in Cold War Berlin and holds a Masters of Divinity from Yale University. Her books are Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living (now also available in paperback), Einstein’s God – Conversations about Science and the Human Spirit, and Speaking of Faith – Why Religion Matters, and How to Talk about It. In 2013, Krista took On Being and The Civil Conversations Project into independent non-profit production.
