Advance Notice

Author tells how less can be more

Former Wall Street Journal editor and reporter Kevin Salwen talks about how his family changed after they decided to sell their Atlanta home, move into one half its size, and donate $800,000 to charity.

He will speak at the Emory Center for Myth and Ritual in American Life on Wednesday, March 31, at 4 p.m.

Salwen wrote “The Power of Half” with his daughter, Hannah, who convinced her parents and younger brother that they didn’t need all their possessions, and they could improve life for many others if they learned to live with half and give the rest away.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
