Dragonfly Books is hosting a four-week discussion series with local author Bradley Hanson on his new book, “Spirituality and Your Life Story,” starting Wednesday, July 2, at 7-8:30 p.m. at Dragonfly Books in downtown Decorah.

Using psychologist Dan McAdams’s idea that we make sense of life by composing our own life story, Hanson explores how our personal identity and spirituality are influenced by the meaning and values embedded in our childhood family life and major story lines promoted by our culture.

Combining personal interviews, spiritual reflection, and psychological research, Hanson considers our most basic quest to make sense of life.
The four-week discussion series begins Wednesday, July 2, and continues Wednesdays, July 9, 16 and 23 at 7-8:30 p.m. At the first meeting, participants will discuss chapters one and two. Interested persons are invited to attend any or all of the discussions.
