Drawing from his bestselling books, Gross National Happiness: Why Happiness Matters for America and How We Can Get More of It and Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism, Brooks will share his perspectives from research and experience on charitable giving, the state of America’s economy and culture, the promise of opportunity, and America’s pursuit of happiness. Join us for a thought-provoking and engaging dialogue that will promise to shift your thinking and challenge your perspectives.

  • Also, I will introduce Arthur Brooks for a short talk that same evening, January 29th at the Western Liberty Network Conference Reception at the Embassy Suites in Hillsboro. The Reception runs from 7:00 to 10pm and Arthur Brooks will speak between 8:00 and 8:30pm. This will be quite a different audience than that at the City Club, and some of us plan to attend both.

    There is no cost for the Reception, but you’re encourage to sign up for events at the Conference the next day, Saturday, January 30th here:

    With his sky high salary, Brooks is certainly not living on less!
