Andy Couturier, Author of "The Abundance of Less"

Sunday, November 5, 7:30 PM:  Book Reading and Discussion by Andy Couturier, author of “The Abundance of Less: Lessons in Simple Living from Rural Japan” (North Atlantic Books).  Andy captures the texture of sustainable lives well lived in these ten profiles of ordinary—yet exceptional—men and women who left behind mainstream existence in urban Japan to live surrounded by the luxuries of nature, art, friends, food, and an abundance of time. “…This book is subversive in the best possible way.”  Bill McKibben. “Reading this magic book is like drinking from a fresh wellspring deep in the mountains…” David Abram.  “Andy has written some very articulate pieces on the counterculture in Japan.” Gary Snyder.
