An Evening with Bruce Feiler

February 21, 2013 7:30 PM

Bestselling Author Bruce Feiler to Share Secrets of Happy Families at Friends’ Central.

Don’t worry about family dinner. Let your kids pick their punishments. Ditch the sex talk. Cancel date night. These are just a few of the surprising innovations in Bruce Feiler’s new book The Secrets of Happy Families: Improve Your Mornings, Rethink Family Dinner, Fight Smarter, Go Out and Play, and Much More. On Thursday, February 21 at 7:30 pm on Friends’ Central’s City Avenue campus (1101 City Ave., Wynnewood, Pa.), Feiler will be sharing answers to the questions that so many parents today are asking: How do we manage the chaos of our lives? How do we teach our kids values? How do we make our family happier?

To be released on February 19, The Secrets of Happy Families is a bold, yet fun, first-of-its-kind playbook for today’s families that looks at how parents and children can draw closer together. In researching his book, Feiler embarked on a three-year journey to find cutting-edge solutions and ideas to make his family happier. Instead of interviewing the usual family experts and psychologists, he sought out some of the most creative minds – from Silicon Valley to the country’s top negotiators, and even visited the set of Modern Family – to find out what team-building and problem-solving techniques they used with their own families. He then tested those ideas with his own wife and children. The result, The Secrets of Happy Families, is a fresh, smart, and completely original book that can change the lives of families.

Bruce Feiler writes a column about contemporary families for the Sunday New York Times and is the author of five consecutive New York Times bestsellers, including Walking the Bible and The Council of Dads. He is the writer and host of the PBS series “Walking the Bible” and the forthcoming “Sacred Journeys with Bruce Feiler.”
