William Everett Reading & Signing

William Everett will introduce his new book Sawdust and Soul: A Conversation on Woodworking and Spirituality on Saturday, April 25th at 3:00 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. The book is a conversation between Everett, an American ethicist, and John DeGruchy, a South African theologian, reflecting on their work with wood and how it has helped them find creativity and meaning in experiences of both loss and transformation. Through their friendship, correspondence, and work together they have developed a rich narrative about the way this craftwork has shaped their relationships with family, friends and the natural environment.  Everett taught Christian ethics in graduate schools for over thirty years before turning to woodworking.
