Peterborough Town Library is thrilled to host a discussion between the authors about their work, their meditations on silence and emptiness, and their latest books. Space is limited, please register. Copies of their latest books will be available for sale.


Thomas Moore

About Thomas Moore:

Thomas Moore published his classic Care of the Soul in 1992 and has since written twenty books on spirituality, sexuality, myth, religion and depth psychology. His books have been translated into thirty languages. He has taught religious studies and psychology and has been a psychotherapist for over 30 years. He often speaks at C. G. Jung societies and has done special work consulting at major medical centers with the idea of bringing soul to medicine. He was a close friend and collaborator with James Hillman and published an anthology of Hillman’s work with extensive introductions and commentaries. He writes fiction and music and has a special relationship with Ireland, the home of his ancestors. He lives in New England. His wife is Hari Kirin Khalsa, an accomplished painter and yoga trainer. His daughter Ajeet is a popular singer of spiritual music, and his stepson Abe is an architect. His son-in-law Nirmal is a media designer and business consultant.

His latest book is The Eloquence of Silence. Find out more and order the book here: https://www.thomasmooresoul.com/the-eloquence-of-silence

Andrew Krivak

About Andrew Krivak:

Andrew Krivak is the author of three novels, two chapbooks of poetry, and two works of nonfiction. His 2011 debut novel, The Sojourn, was a National Book Award finalist. He followed The Sojourn, in what would become the Dardan Trilogy, with The Signal Flame, a novel The New York Times said evoked “an austere landscape, a struggling family, and a deep source of pain.” His novel The Bear received the Banff Mountain Book Prize for fiction, and is a National Endowment for the Arts Big Read title.

Like the Appearance of Horses, the third novel in the Dardan Trilogy, is forthcoming in 2023.
