"Talking with Kari was like talking with my perfect reader! She asked all the smart questions I was hoping to be asked, and then some I had never dreamed of. We dove straight into the heart of my novel, touched on every character and big idea, and before I could catch my breath, the time was up! And I would have gladly done it all over again."

What should Make You Happy, but Doesn't
What Shouldn't Make You Happy, but Does


Sonja Lyubomirsky

sonja lyubomirsky

Science shows we have much more resilience than we think! All of us strive to be happy but, research shows that, because our brains are actually hard-wired to adapt to any circumstances, the joys or sorrows we feel are fleeting. Kari talks with UC Riverside Psychology Professor and International Best-selling Author Sonja Lyubomirsky about dispelling false notions about happiness. Research shows it’s the frequency of happiness, not the intensity of the emotion that leads us to live healthier, longer lives.




Chapter 2: Literary-Fiction

John Kenney

In his premiere novel, seasoned Ad Agency Copywriter and "New Yorker" contributor, John Kenney tells an often funny, ironic story of ad agency Creative Finbar Dolan. Approaching his 40th birthday, Fin is mildly successful but he's also lost and lonely, only he really doesn't know it. Then, he gets a wake-up call that forces him to take a harder look at his life choices and come to terms with what truly matters.
