Bruce Feiler

Bestselling Author and New York Times Columnist

In a practical and inspiring program, Bruce shares lessons from his books as a way to help listeners edify and get the most from their personal, spiritual, and familial lives. Messages include improving their mornings, rethinking family dinner, learning to fight smarter, why you must go out and play, and much more. Parents will walk away with a fresh perspective on their day to day family lives and tangible methods to help draw their families closer together.

In a separate program, Bruce takes audiences on a journey of survival through the power of community. Fearing the worst for his twin daughters following his bone cancer diagnosis, Bruce partnered with a group of fathers to create a special community to help his girls deal with his illness. He then asked each one for a piece of advice for his daughters: how to live, how to travel, how to question, how to dream. In this funny and moving presentation, Bruce relates the lessons he learned about the power of friendship and community and encourages all of us to draw closer to our friends, be more resourceful as parents, and celebrate who’s important in our lives.
