THE MINIMALISTS: EVERYTHING THAT REMAINS
Wednesday, May 28, 2014 – 7:00pm
Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, The Minimalists, come to The Ivy on their international tour promoting better living through less stuff.
What if everything you ever wanted isn’t what you actually want? Twenty-something, suit-clad and upwardly mobile, Joshua Fields Millburn thought he had everything anyone could ever want. Until he didn’t anymore. Blindsided by the loss of his mother and his marriage in the same month, Millburn started questioning every aspect of the life he had built for himself. Then, he accidentally discovered a lifestyle known as minimalism . . . and everything started to change.
That was four years ago. Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of something more substantial than compulsory consumption, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt and walked away from his six-figure career.
Everything That Remains is the story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Not a how-to book but a why-to book, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn’s best friend of 20 years.
The Minimalists, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, write about living a meaningful life with less stuff for 2 million readers. They live in Montana by way of Dayton, Ohio.
