Krista Tippett in Conversation with Adam Davis


Over the 15 years that Krista Tippett has hosted her beloved radio program on NPR, first under the title Speaking of Faith and then as On Being, the heart of her work has been to shine a light on the most extraordinary people at work on the big issues and questions of the day, people whose missions kindle in us a sense of wonder. In Becoming Wise (Penguin Press), Tippett distills the insights she has gleaned from these luminous characters about the meaning of life in its many dimensions into a coherent narrative journey, over time and from mind to mind, exploring what it means to be human. Tippet will be joined in conversation by Adam Davis, Executive Director of Oregon Humanities.
