Byrd's Books In Conversation with Roger Rosenblatt on October 28th 

Join us for a very special evening as we discuss via zoom Cold Moon: On Life, Love, and Responsibility with the author, Roger Rosenblatt.

About the book:

The Cold Moon occurs in late December, auguring the arrival of the winter solstice. Approaching the winter solstice of his own life, Roger Rosenblatt offers a book dedicated to the three most important lessons he has learned over his many years: an appreciation of being alive, a recognition of the gift and power of love, and the necessity of excercising responsibility toward one another. Rosenblatt's poetic reflections on these vital life lessons offer a tonic for these perilous and fearful times, and attest to the value of our very existence. Cold Moon: a book to offer purpose, to focus the attention on life's essentials, and to lift the spirit.
