FRIDAY, JULY 28
Jaimil Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha, will be reading from his brand new book out from Harper Wave, All Our Waves are Water. In this humorous, meditative memoir—a fusion of Barbarian Days and the journals of Thomas Merton—the author of Saltwater Buddha reflects on “stumbling toward enlightenment,” his continued search to find meaning in the world’s oceans as well as in the highs and lows of everyday life. For Jaimal Yogis, the path to enlightenment is surfing.
