  • THE CODE OF THE EXTRAORDINARY MIND by Vishen Lakhiani

    This New York Times bestseller is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything including our ideas of love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more, which we inherit and pass on from our generation to the next.

ED TARKINGTON INTRODUCES HIS NOVEL

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17; 7 PM

ED TARKINGTON, a distant cousin of the renowned American novelist Booth Tarkington, will introduce the softcover edition of his successful first novel, Only Love Can Break Your Heart. According to the author, “It’s a coming-of-age novel, but it is also a Gothic tale with macabre undertones, a murder mystery in which the damsel-in-distress is also a suspect, and a time-capsule view of the imperiled American middle class at a point in history which in some ways foreshadows our current cultural moment.” It explores the troubled bond between two half-brothers, set against a backdrop of the hazards of love, jealousy, and madness. NPR Books refers to the book as “A lush mystery within-a-coming-of-age-tale-within-a-Southern Gothic…interesting, readable and beautifully written. ALGONQUIN
