Author Patricia Hampl

“A sharp and unconventional book — a swirl of memoir, travelogue and biography of some of history’s champion day-dreamers.” —Maureen Corrigan, “Fresh Air”

“The Art of the Wasted Day” is a picaresque travelogue of leisure written from a lifelong enchantment with solitude.

Award-winning memoirist Patricia Hampl will read from her new book, discuss the writing process, and take questions from the audience.
