#1 New York Times bestseller Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, visits with Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon Self-Control, and My Other Experiments in Everyday Life.
One afternoon, Rubin was hit by a wave of homesickness while she was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home and also learn how to appreciate how much happiness was there already. So Rubin dedicated a school year — September through May — to making her home a place of greater simplicity, comfort, and love. She delved deep into the things that matter most for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family's treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster. With a blend of memoir, science, philosophy, and experimentation, Rubin hopes to inspire readers to find more happiness in their own lives. EVENT DETAILS
