Two months before the publication of their new book Everything That Remains, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, better known to their 2 million readers as The Minimalists, will host an event in New York City to preview the book for the media and the public.
At age 30, Joshua and Ryan left their six-figure corporate careers, got rid of most of their material possessions, and began living more deliberately. Be the first to hear them discuss their new book and their journey into the simple life, followed by a short reading, a brief Q&A, and an optional book signing. You'll also be able to pick up a special advance copy of the book available at only this event.
With special musical guest Peter Doran.

About the Book: Everything That Remains
"Like Henry David Thoreau, but with Wi-Fi." —Boston Globe
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 five years ago. Since, Millburn, now 32, has embraced simplicity. In the pursuit of looking for something more substantial than compulsory consumption and the broken American Dream, he jettisoned most of his material possessions, paid off loads of crippling debt, and walked away from his six-figure career.
So, when everything was gone, what was left?
Not a how-to book, but a why-to book, Everything That Remains is the touching, surprising story of what happened when one young man decided to let go of everything and begin living more deliberately. Heartrending, uplifting, and deeply personal, this engrossing memoir is peppered with insightful (and often hilarious) interruptions by Ryan Nicodemus, Millburn’s best friend of twenty years.
