James Geary on the Life and Aphorisms of Nicolas ChamfortOther - Waterstone'sHow can aphorisms change your life? Find out when James Geary brings his Juggling Aphorisms show - yes real live juggling of words and balls. Geary presents a mix of memoir, literary history, audience participation - and live juggling, with words and balls. Audience members are invited to randomly pick an aphorism from a globe and read it aloud; Geary then tells about that aphorism and the person who wrote it, weaving in personal and historical anecdote. There are also several blank strips of paper in the globe. If an audience member draws one of these, they can name any theme and Geary must cite a related aphorism on the spot. If he fails, they get a free copy of the book! -James Geary
