Travel Writer Pico Iyer Explores Aging, Death In 'Autumn Light'
Set against the backdrop of his home in Japan, Iyer takes on the subject of grief following the death of his father-in-law.
In a companion book, "A Beginner's Guide To Japan," Iyer takes the reader to the land where he's lived for more than three decades and explains why he sometimes still feels like a visitor in his adopted home.
Iyer will be discussing both books at the upcoming Writer's Symposium By The Sea at Point Loma Nazarene University. He will be speaking on Feb. 26.
The author joined Midday Edition on Monday to talk about his latest books and how he stays centered in the hyper-connected world of today.
