River Readings: Jessica Lamb-Shapiro

Tuesday, Jan. 27 at 7 PM
Wilson Center


Who among us hasn’t tried some kind of self-help endeavor at least once in our lives? Whether it’s a certain diet or exercise program, a goal-setting exercise, a relationship advice column, or any other number of things, it’s a natural human desire to try to make our lives healthier and more fulfilling. Come to River Readings next Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 7 PM in the Wilson Center to hear writer Jessica Lamb-Shapiro’s take on the self-help industry and what she learned from immersing herself in it. Jessica will read excerpts from her book Promise Land: My Journey Through America’s Self-Help Culture and answer questions at the end of the evening. Books will be available for sale and signing, and refreshments will round out the event.
Full details are available at: http://www.augustana.edu/x11824.xml?eventid=13795 and excerpts of Jessica’s book can be found on Moodle (under “Departments and Other Groups” — “Tredway Library” — “River Readings”). Contact AmandaMakula@augustana.edu for more information. Hope to see you there!
