Sharon Salzberg + Randy Cohen

Person Place Thing

Sunday, November 20, 2016
3:00 PM–4:30 PM

Meditation teacher and Rubin regular Sharon Salzberg is invited by humorist Randy Cohen to talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to her.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on the idea that people are particularly engaging when they speak, not directly about themselves, but about something they care about. The result: surprising stories from great talkers.
