“Enlightenment is Not an Ego Project”

6:30 pm

Thu, May 31st


Enlightenment is Not an Ego Project principally represents a description of the process of spiritual awakening and pays particular attention to the emotional suffering which almost inevitably accompanies this awakening.   Moreover, the book blends the personal with the spiritual in a way that makes liberation of consciousness a present and entirely potential reality for anyone, rather than, as it so often is viewed, a rarefied and highly unusual experience enjoyed by only the most eccentric or holy sages.

Allison Fantetti

Teen Services and Technology Library

I joined the Whitefish Bay Public Library in 2017. I have worked all around the Milwaukee area over the last five years including Brown Deer, Oak Creek, and New Berlin. Previous to that I worked my way up from page to intern in LaGrange IL, a suburb of Chicago. I’m excited to be working with all ages at WFB but focusing on Teens. Most of the reading I do is spent in young adult fiction but sometimes I venture into adult non-fiction. In my free time I can be found listening to podcasts or catching up on TV.

About Whitefish Bay Public Library

A library that is just about lending books seems so last century, doesn’t it?

That’s our philosophy at the Whitefish Bay Public Library, anyway. We believe that everything that we do, we do to make a difference in someone’s life. Creating connections. Building community. Collecting stories. Sure, we have books, but we’re SO much more.
