Join Jeff Kelly Lowenstein as he reads from his latest and third book Meaningful Matters: Reflections on Joy, Loss and Our Changing World.

This selection of blog posts written between 2008 and 2015 bring together pieces on sources of momentary delight, tributes to deceased loved ones, and analysis of the seismic changes gripping our planet. Tackling history's painful legacies and affirming life's daily gifts, it is a meditation on living with gratitude and joy in a profoundly imperfect world.

 Lowenstein is the Taco Kuiper Visiting Fellow at Wits University. His work has been published in The New Yorker and by the Center for Public Integrity, among many others, and has earned national and international recognition.
