In this city, where bigger is better and more is more, you wouldn’t expect to find of a couple of guys like The Minimalists. Childhood best friends Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus have been likened to “Henry David Thoreau, but with Wi-Fi” (Boston Globe). And, like the pond-dweller’s mantra to “Simplify,” they preach similar virtues of radical reduction in their newest memoir, Everything That Remains (Asymmetrical Press). In short: Own less stuff, be happier. Life: solved. Tonight, they read from the book and outline their 21-day journey into minimalism, a numerically transversed 12-step program that outlines a plan for how and why to pare down your life with points of action that include getting rid of your TV, eating only unprocessed foods, digitizing all your papers, and picking your outfit — your single outfit. Hang out afterward for a Q&A and book signing.
