Search for Meaning Empowerment Series: Timothy Egan

Timothy Egan at Town Hall

NYT columnist and National Book Award winner, Timothy Egan speaks at Town Hall (October 15) about his new book that was released Tuesday, “Pilgrimage to Eternity.” Egan’s book describes his pilgrimage through Europe in search of making sense of his childhood faith, which he abandoned as a young man. He went off on the journey after the convergence of three experiences: – his amazement of the character and tone of Pope Francis, the death of his mother, and his attendance at the Search for Meaning Festival. The School of Theology and Ministry created the community program to engage the region in the deep existential and spiritual questions that haunt human beings. The Festival ran for 10 years 2008-2018 and became the largest singular event of the university.
