Join North Vancouver District Public Library for an evening with Cait Flanders, author of The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in A Store.
The Year of Less is a self-help memoir that documents Cait Flanders’ life for the first year of a two-year shopping ban she completed in 2016.
At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. But the challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, she found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. It was then that she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food—and what it had cost her. Blending her story with insight and practical guidance, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you’re holding on to in your own life—and, quite possibly, lead you to your own path of less.
