"Dinner With Buddha" Roland Merullo (live)

Dimitra Lavrakas (; Wisdom Quarterly

ROCKPORT, Illinois - Best-selling author will be guest speaker at Rockport Public Library this Wednesday, July 22, at 7:00 pm. He will be discussing his newest work, Dinner with Buddha, which was published last month.

In speaking of his “with Buddha” trilogy, Merullo has said, “My original intention was to introduce an ordinary American to the wisdom of the East, especially their emphasis on meditation and contemplation. I wanted him to have a deepening understanding of himself and of the world he inhabits.”

Would the Buddha eat 'shrooms with Mags?
Besides his "with Buddha" trilogy, Merullo is the author of Golfing with God, and Revere Beach Elegy, winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for non-fiction.

Merullo's talk is part of the Meet the Author series, a collaborative effort of the Rockport Public Library, the Friends of the Library, and Toad Hall Bookstore on Main Street.  All events are FREE to the public.
