Next Thursday, October 27, Eugene Lang’s First-Year Writing Program is hosting a public event celebrating the release of a new book by Camille DeAngelisLife Without Envy: Ego Management for Creative People. In conversation with Lang’s own Haley Hatch, Camille will discuss the creation her practical and compassionate guide to dealing with feelings of jealousy, frustration, and inadequacy, all in service of a happy life—regardless of how your work is (or isn’t) going. The event is ideal for writers or other artists entering and working in a world where ZERO SUM seems to be the name of the game. Camille would like you to imagine another world, where someone’s gain does not mean your loss (and vice versa). She’s convinced we’ll all be profoundly better off for it.

This event—again, Thursday, 10/27—will take place at Eugene Lang College at The New School, 66 W. 12th St., Room 510 (the Klein conference room), New York City. The conversation will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Books will be available for purchase and to have signed. Feel free to register at the event’s Facebook page.
