Kepler's Books, Friday, April 25 at 7:30pm
Barbara Ehrenreich in conversation with Angie Coiro

Friday, April 25, 7:30 p.m.

Living with a Wild God: A Nonbeliever's Search for the Truth about Everything Please join us for what's sure to be a fascinating evening with Barbara Ehrenreich in conversation with Angie Coiro. Barbara Ehrenreich is the bestselling author of Nickel and Dimed, Brightsided and Bait and Switch. In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and set out to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny-or as she later learned to call them, "mystical"-experiences. A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search. Part memoir, part philosophical and spiritual inquiry, LIVING WITH A WILD GOD brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. Angie Coiro is an award-winning journalist and interviewer, host of the syndicated In Deep radio show. Bay Area audiences know her from Live From the Left Coast/The Angie Coiro Show; KCSM-TV’s “Spotlight!”; KQED's Friday Forum; KGO radio; and for many years of news and traffic reporting around the dial. Angie co-founded the Tech Connects interview series at The Tech Museum of San Jose, currently in its second year. She has a parallel career as a voiceover talent, represented by JETalent in San Francisco.
