Pico Iyer on the Dalai Lama and The Open Road

Attention Gothamites: This Friday at the New York Public Library, Pico Iyer will engage with Paul Holdengraber in an open conversation about the Dalai Lama's work and ideas. From the NYPL's event description:

In his new book, The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai
Lama,
Pico Iyer gives us the first serious consideration of this worldwide
leader’s work and ideas as a politician, scientist, and philosopher. Having
been engaged in conversation with the Dalai Lama for the last three
decades, Iyer captures the paradoxes of the Dalai Lama’s position: though
he has brought the ideas of Tibet to world attention, Tibet itself is being
remade as a Chinese province; though he was born in one of the remotest,
least developed places on earth, he has become a champion of globalism and
technology. Iyer illuminates the hidden life, the transforming ideas, and
the daily challenges of this global icon.
