Lecture by Pico Iyer (The Lady and the Monk)

Pico Iyer has made travel writing a philosophical adventure in books such as the beautiful love story The Lady and the Monk: Four Seasons in Kyoto and Video Night in Kathmandu. In this talk, Pico talks reflects on the meaning of constancy in a dizzingly mobile village. He also reads from his new book, Global Soul: Jet Lag, Shopping Malls and the Search for Home.
