What do we think of when we think about heaven? What might it look like? Who or what might be there? 

Ponder those questions Tuesday evening when author Catherine Wolff presents “Beyond: How Humankind Thinks About Heaven.”

The free lecture, presented in collaboration with the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference, will start at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 20, on The Community Library’s Donaldson Robb Family Green on 4th Street in Ketchum.

Attendees are invited to bring low-back chairs or blankets. No registration is needed.

Wolff takes a look at the cultural history of heaven in her book, delving into how people and cultures have defined heaven over the centuries. She describes how the sense of heaven has evolved and how nonreligious influences have affected it.

Wolff will sign books sold by Chapter One Bookstore following the lecture.

Wolff is a therapist, writer and former director of the Arrupe Center for Community-Based Learning at Santa Clara University.

She is the wife of author Tobias Wolff with whom she has three grown children and a home in Stanford, Calif. Tobias Jonathan Ansell Wolff is an American short story writer and novelist best known for his memoirs, including “This Boy’s Life” and “In Pharoah’s Army.”

He will speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 21, in Ketchum’s Forest Service Park as part of the 2021 Summer Speaker series presented by The Community Library and the Sun Valley Writers Conference. There is a wait list for that. But it will be livestreamed at https://www.comlib.org
