Friends Book Club
January 12 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
The Friends of the Walker Memorial Book Club meets the second Wednesday of the month at 2 pm. We will be meeting at the Community Center. If you are interested in joining, please send an email to email@example.com. This months selection is “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. You can request a copy of the book from the library.
Book synopsis as follows: Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Based on his own experience and the stories of his patients, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. At the heart of his theory, known as logotherapy, is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure but the pursuit of what we find meaningful. Man’s Search for Meaning has become one of the most influential books in America; it continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living.
