Rob Schwartz presents THE WISDOM OF MORRIE at Newton Free Library

Please note: this event is at the Newton Free Library at 330 Homer St. 


Join Rob Schwartz, son of Morrie Schwartz, the beloved subject of the classic, multimillion-copy number one bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie for a talk on the recently released book, The Wisdom of Morrie. Before becoming ill with ALS, Morrie wrote a poignant manuscript on aging joyfully and creatively. Set aside until now, Rob has edited the monograph and added essays creating a work that Deepak Chopra said is, "Beautiful…Those lucky enough to read this book will be inspired."


A great companion to Tuesdays with Morrie or the perfect introduction to Morrie's thoughtful philosophies, The Wisdom of Morrie is filled with empathic insights, stories, anecdotes, and advice, told in Morrie's reassuring, calm and timeless voice. Let The Wisdom of Morrie be your guide in exploring deep questions of how to live and how to love.


This in-person program will be followed by a book sale with books provided by Newtonville Books. The session is cosponsored by the City of Newton Department of Senior Services and will be moderated by Jean Stehle, Oak Hill Middle School Librarian.
