BookNew Book Club: Spiritual Classics with Nick Shindo Street at the Last Bookstore

In this club we dive into the best wisdom we can find, guided by author and journalist Nick Shindo Street. Nick is the senior writer at the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture, and his biggest turn-ons are wonder, awe, and curiosity.
