The Booksmith is excited to host Ravi Chandra as he introduces his new book, Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks. Join us at The Bindery!

Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks is a rich modern cross-cultural memoir, a state-of-the-art exploration of psychological research about social media, and an engaging introduction to Buddhism. A journey through the wilds of relationships, from a rooftop in Hanoi to a village in India, from the streets of San Francisco and Japan to the blue Wall of Facebook, Facebuddha culminates in transformative spiritual experience that will leave you inspired by the possibilities of our precious human lives.www.facebuddha.co.
