Graduation season is approaching, that time of year when the air is choked with visions of limitless possibility. And whether you’re looking to celebrate the occasion or inoculate against it, you’ll find no better tonic than the book launch of George Saunders’s Congratulations, By the Way, at the PowerHouse Arena. The book is an illustrated transcript of his speech at the 2013 Syracuse commencement ceremony. Rather than a paean to the dynamism of youth, it’s a refreshing tribute to growing older, growing kinder, and replacing ourselves with love.
