5/14/07: Dancing in the Streets

Author Barbara Ehrenreich

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Lord Byron wrote that to have joy, one must share it. "Happiness," he said, "was born a twin." As a species, we have long celebrated communal expressions of joy - from ancient festivals and rituals to today's revelry at sporting events. Acclaimed author Barbara Ehrenreich has written a new book called Dancing in the Streets, and Monday she's with us to talk about how joy has helped humans create social bonds - and may be the key to a more peaceable future.
