Author John Kaag to speak at Concord Free Public Library

CONCORD – Author John Kaag will discuss his book “Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are” at the Concord Free Public Library on Tuesday, February 19 at 7:00 p.m. The event will take place in the Periodical Room of the Main Library at 129 Main Street.

Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are is a tale of two philosophical journeys—one made by John Kaag as an introspective young man of nineteen, the other seventeen years later, in radically different circumstances: he is now a husband and father, and his wife and small child are in tow. Kaag sets off for the Swiss peaks above Sils Maria where Nietzsche wrote his landmark work Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Hiking with Nietzsche is a fascinating exploration not only of Nietzsche’s ideals but of how his experience of living relates to us as individuals in the twenty-first century. Bold, intimate, and rich with insight, Hiking with Nietzsche is about defeating complacency, balancing sanity and madness, and coming to grips with the unobtainable. Named a Best Book of 2018 by NPR.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit www.concordlibrary.org.
