Outdoor meet & greet with Stephen Kent | How the Force Can Fix the World

Join us for an outdoor meet & greet on our patio (in front of the blue door). Stephen will be signing books from 3 p.m. until sunset.

What if we looked to Star Wars for more than just entertainment? How the Force Can Fix the World takes this challenge on by analyzing the core principles of the Star Wars franchise: HOPE, CHOICE, HUMILITY, EMPATHY, REDEMPTION, BALANCE and rejecting FEAR. Together, these are the Star Wars roadmap for living better lives, and maybe even fostering a better politics.
The path that we’re on—where fear leads to anger, and anger to hatred—will only end in suffering. But Star Wars shows us the way back from the brink. Shared stories of virtue that are beloved across cultures and political divides are hard to come by, but Star Wars is one such story. Turn on the news; things are pretty broken right now—but the Force can fix the world.
