LEAD Parent University Keynote: Bruce Feiler

Join NY Times Bestselling Author, Bruce Feiler, for a talk on November 6th at 7pm in the Gorton Community Center. From their page: "Bruce Feiler is the author of five consecutive New York Times bestsellers. His latest book, The Secrets of Happy Families (Feb. 2013), is a bold playbook for families today. It collects best practices for modern-day parents from some of the world’s most creative minds, including top designers in Silicon Valley, elite peace negotiators, the creators of “Modern Family,” and the Green Berets. At the podium, Feiler shares cutting-edge ideas he tested with his own wife and kids, including how to improve mornings, rethink family dinner, fight smarter, create a family mission statement, and find more joy. Parents will walk away from this personal, highly practical talk with a fresh outlook on life and a host of techniques to make their families closer, stronger, and happier." More information is available at Lead.
