7/16/2001; 85 minutes

With keen perception and wit, Pico Iyer has made travel writing a philosophical adventure in books such as "The Lady and the Monk: Four Seasons in Kyoto" and "Video Night in Kathmandu". In this talk, Pico reflects on the meaning of constancy in a dizzingly mobile village. He also reads from his new book, "Global Soul: Jet Lag, Shopping Malls and the Search for Home." (#5856)
