The UMass Amherst Libraries invite the public to the 19th Annual Fall Reception, “If You Want to be Happy, Be Grateful: The Life and Teachings of Brother David Steindl-Rast.” 

The 2017 Fall Reception celebrates the life and work of Brother David Steindl-Rast, whose archives are an important part of the Libraries’ Special Collections. A scholar, writer, activist, and Benedictine monk, Brother David has shared a worldwide message of peace, interfaith dialog, social justice, and environmental stewardship for more than 50 years, and he is co-founder of the interactive online community A Network for Grateful Living.

The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are appreciated by September 22, 2017:, 413-545-3974.
