Author Talk: “Next! The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work” with Joanne Lipman

April 19 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Join us at the Ridgefield Library on Wednesday, April 19th at 7:00 pm as we welcome bestselling author and journalist Joanne Lipman to discuss her new book, Next! The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work.

In Next!, Lipman distills hundreds of personal interviews along with the latest scientific research. Through irresistible storytelling, she takes us inside successful career reinventions (ad executive to bestselling novelist; stay-at-home mom to CEO) and astonishing business transformations (wait until you hear what Play-Doh and Viagra have in common). From the laboratories of neuroscientists to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, to the frontlines of the social justice movement, Lipman explores how and why these transformations succeed.

At its heart, Next! offers a thrilling argument: by harnessing the science and understanding the process, we can better understand how to reinvent that new career, change the direction of our lives, or inspire innovation in our organizations. This book provides a toolkit that shows how to make meaningful transitions—large or small—and to figure out for ourselves what’s Next!
