Audience: Adults

Categories: Book Club/Discussion, Virtual

This Virtual Book Club is a partnership between Jane's Walk MKE and the Milwaukee Public Library.Please join meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone by clicking link here.The Art of Gathering proposes a bold new approach to how we gather that will transform the ways we spend our time together - at work, at home, online, in our communities, & beyond.In The Art of Gathering, Priya Parker argues that the gatherings in our lives are lackluster and unproductive--which they don't have to be. We rely too much on routine and the conventions of gatherings when we should focus on distinctiveness and the people involved. At a time when coming together is more important than ever, Parker sets forth a human-centered approach to gathering that will help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences, large and small, for work and for play.Read more about The Art of Gathering at https://www.priyaparker.com/thebook or listen to Parker's new podcast, Together Apart, as she helps people navigate life's gatherings amid the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic (https://www.priyaparker.com/podcast.)
