The Library’s Retro Summer Series commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and Woodstock festival. Robert Atkinson – author, developmental psychologist, and professor emeritus – will share his memoir, Year of Living Deeply: A Memoir of 1969. Full of soulfulness, grace, and insights, Robert’s story gently carries the reader into a magical realm of timelessness: from sailing on the Clearwater, to attending Woodstock, to living in a cabin in the woods, to meeting Joseph Campbell, who, with Pete Seeger, becomes a guide and mentor, to visiting Arlo Guthrie at his farm in the Berkshires with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, to living as a guest in a Franciscan monastery – all of which help to reveal the patterns connecting all things. Join us for a glimpse into the year of 1969 from someone who truly lived it deeply. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited.
