Point Reyes Books Presents: Jenny Odell*

April 1, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm PDT

Jenny Odell, bestselling author of How to Do Nothing, returns to Point Reyes for a conversation with bookstore co-owner Stephen Sparks about her highly anticipated new book, Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock(Random House).

“This fiercely generous new book by Jenny Odell invites us to exit the superhighways and explore the scenic detours, byways, rebel camps, the other visions of who we can be while reminding us that slowness can yield more than speed.”—Rebecca Solnit, author of Men Explain Things to Me

“At this pivotal historical moment, when so many of us are struggling with burnout, anxiety about the future, and a gnawing dissatisfaction that things don’t have to be like this, in strides Jenny Odell with the exact book that we needed. Odell masterfully dissects the origins of our many destructive beliefs around work, leisure, and self-improvement, while also offering a way for us to be free of them. Saving Time is an exposé of our past, an antidote to our present, and a manifesto for the future. It is rigorous, compassionate, profound, and hopeful. It is one of the most important books I’ve read in my life.”—Ed Yong, author of An Immense World

Each ticket for this event includes a copy of Saving Time.
