Dr. Edith Bone was released in 1956 after seven years of solitary confinement, and her story started Michael Harris’ journey into exploring and practicing solitude.  As he read her memoir, he realized that there was “a certain art to being alone that she had practiced…I wanted to learn how to practice solitude in the same way.”  Michael is a  widely published author who writes about a broad range of topics.  His books include The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We've Lost in a World of Constant Connection and Solitude: In Pursuit of a Singular Life in a Crowded World.
