Booktalk: Gretchen Rubin at the Plaza Library

Rubin, who lives in New York but grew up in Kansas City, is the best-selling author of Forty Ways to Look at Winston Churchill. She was here last night to talk about her latest, more personal endeavor, The Happiness Project. The project consisted of Rubin’s attempt to become happier through dozens of personal resolutions and testing out the relevant wisdom of pop culture, the ages and science. Sure to be featured on Oprah soon, The Happiness Project comprises a Web site and the book The Happiness Project: Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle and Generally Have More Fun (which we reviewed last Friday).
