A Moveable Feast Book Club: Pico Iyer's Autumn Light

Wednesday, November 6, 11:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Join fellow book lovers for lunch and conversation in the DMA’s Cook Boardroom to delve more deeply into Pico Iyer’s memoir Autumn Light: A Season of Fire and Farewells, a moving meditation on impermanence, mortality, and grief that also explores Japanese history and culture. Iyer grapples with the question we all have to live with: how to hold on to the things we love, even though we know that we—and they—are dying. The conversation will be facilitated by Amy Lewis Hofland, Executive Director of the Crow Museum of Asian Art of the University of Texas at Dallas.

Tim O'Brien

Monday, November 11, 7:30 p.m.

In conversation with author Ben Fountain

After becoming a father at the age of 58, National Book Award–winning novelist Tim O’Brien realized that when his two young sons would begin to know him, they would know an old man. He resolved to give them what he wished his own father had given him—a few scraps of paper signed “Love, Dad.” For the next 15 years, the author talked to his sons on paper, as if they were adults, imagining what they might want to hear from a father who was no longer among the living. The result is Dad’s Maybe Book, in which O’Brien shares wisdom from a life in letters, lessons learned in wartime, and the challenges, humor, and rewards of raising two sons.
