Event Details

Join us to discuss this month's Beyond Fiction Book Club selection, Do Nothing by Celeste Headlee.  We are delighted that the author will be joining us on Zoom!  Books will be available to check out at the Adult Help Desk.  If you need help acquiring a book, please reach out to Kelly Kuningas at kkuningas@wauclib.org.  We look forward to reading and discussing with you!

In Do Nothing, award-winning journalist Celeste Headlee illuminates a new path ahead, seeking to institute a global shift in our thinking so we can stop sabotaging our well-being, put work aside, and start living instead of doing. As it turns out, we’re searching for external solutions to an internal problem. We won’t find what we’re searching for in punishing diets, productivity apps, or the latest self-improvement schemes. Yet all is not lost—we just need to learn how to take time for ourselves, without agenda or profit, and redefine what is truly worthwhile.

“A clarion call to work smarter [and] accomplish more by doing less.”—Adam Grant
