William Powers -- "Dispatches from the Sweet Life"

William Powers will speak about and sign his new book, Dispatches from the Sweet Life: One Family, Five Acres, and a Community's Quest to Reinvent the World, on Tuesday, September 11th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
Many people fantasize about living in accordance with their ideals rather than the exigencies of job, bills, and possessions. William Powers actually does it. Bill and wife Melissa, baby in tow, search for balance, humanity, and happiness in Suraqueta, a town in Bolivia where the author discovers a blossoming town with a miniscule carbon footprint, organic farms, and community work parties. Dispatches from the Sweet Life is compelling, thought-provoking, and inspirational.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
