This is a press release from the Ethical Society of Philadelphia:
Cultivating Ethics on the Overnight Train to Korela: A Talk at the EHSoP Nov 13
Novelist and urban farm developer Nic Esposito will present an address, “Cultivating Ethics on the Overnight Train to Korela,” at 11:00 am Sunday, Nov 13 at the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia (EHSoP), 1906 S. Rittenhouse Square. During his journey, Esposito discovered that his spiritual experience was not to be found in the many ashrams or temples scattered throughout the country’s landscape, but on an overnight train through the countryside. His travel narrative seeks to explore what can be found when people let go of their expectations and just enjoy the ride. The program is free and open to the public. For further information about all EHSoP religious and educational programs, call 215-735-3456 or visit http://www.phillyethics.org. Child care is available for Sunday morning programs, but please call to reserve.
Nic Esposito co-founded Philly Rooted, an organization which brought two community gardens, an urban farm and a grower’s cooperative to West Philadelphia. He is currently strategizing the development of the Marathon Urban Farm in the Brewerytown section of Philadelphia. Esposito released his first novel Seeds of Discent (sic) about Philadelphia’s urban family movement last April.
