New York Times bestselling author  of The Happiness Project, and one of the most influential and thought-provoking writers on human nature, Gretchen Rubin reads from her new book The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People’s Lives Better, Too)
“Gretchen Rubin has discovered a new framework for understanding ourselves and other people. When we know our Tendency, we can manage ourselves more effectively and reach our goals faster—and we can help others to do that, as well. As a researcher who has studied habits, addiction, and change for 20 years, I’m excited by the simplicity and power of The Four Tendencies as a tool for anyone seeking to make his or her life better. I am implementing this in my clinical programs to help people understand their Tendencies so they can change behaviors such as stress and emotional eating.” – Judson Brewer, MD, PhD (Questioner), author of The Craving Mind and associate professor in medicine and psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School

Debut novelist, Diana Harmon Asher reads from her novel, Sidetracked

“Oh, how you will love this seventh grader!  Joseph is a terrific boy who experiences the world differently from most. But before you take out your tissues for a good cry, know that Sidetracked is marvelously unpredictable. Joseph is bullied, ridden with anxiety, and terrorized by everything from loud noises to dust bunnies. But pressured into joining the middle school’s new cross-country team, he finds… Just read it! Diana Harmon Asher has written a witty, observant, and sensitive novel for kids, as well as a delight for the adults in their lives.” – Susan Isaacs, New York Times Bestselling Author

Award-winning writer Allison Gilbert reads from her new book, Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive
“Passed and Present encourages us to remember in a whole new way. Allison Gilbert’s sensible, no-nonsense approach provides so many fresh ideas that readers will find inspiration on every page.” – Christina Baker Kline, New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train.
“We all want to keep the memories of lost loved ones alive—but how? With tips on everything from transforming heirlooms to marking anniversaries, this lovely book can help.” – People magazine.
