Lodro Rinzler will speak about and sign his new book, Walk Like a Buddha: Even if Your Boss Sucks, Your Ex is Torturing You, and You're Hung Over Again, on Wednesday, November 13th at 7:30pm.
More About the Book: Since 2010, Lodro Rinzler has been writing an advice column for the Huffington Post called "What Would Sid Do?" ("Sid" being Lodro's nickname for Siddhartha Gautama—the prince who became the Buddha). Lodro's insightful and often funny answers to questions have made him the Dear Abby of the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd. Walk Like a Buddha gathers all of Lodro's Huffington Post columns, along with much as-yet-unpublished material, to provide a guide to life in a Q&A format that allows you to easily access wisdom for dealing with the myriad challenges of life.
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 in advance, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.

Presentation & Booksigning with Lodro Rinzler: The Buddha Walks into a Bar
There's a new thirst for spirituality among young people today—but they're less inclined to adjust their lives around traditional religious forms than they are to look for transformation within their existing lifestyles. And they have a natural affinity for Buddhism. This is a book for them—by one of them. Lodro Rinzler speaks the language of Generation O, as his compatriots are known, and he's a respected Buddhist teacher in his own right. His book is a complete introduction to Buddhism, without the cultural trappings, in language that anyone can understand but that will be especially appreciated by young people today under thirty. It's entertaining, chatty, and often funny, but also very serious. It's for anyone who wants to use the Buddha's teachings to awaken like he did. (jpmoore)… (more)
