Adams Street Book Club: Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times

December 17, 2022, 3 pm.

Meet with others to discuss Katherine May’s Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times. 
Sometimes you slip through the cracks: unforeseen circumstances like an abrupt illness, the death of a loved one, a break up, or a job loss can derail a life. These periods of dislocation can be lonely and unexpected. For May, her husband fell ill, her son stopped attending school, and her own medical issues led her to leave a demanding job. Wintering explores how she not only endured this painful time, but embraced the singular opportunities it offered. A moving personal narrative shot through with lessons from literature, mythology, and the natural world, May’s story offers instruction on the transformative power of rest and retreat.
