Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America
Friday, October 23, 2009, 7:00 p.m., Angelico Hall
Free lecture and book signing
No RSVP • Limited Seating
Ehrenreich reveals how positive thinking has infiltrated every part of American culture and she exposes the downside of this insistence on always and only seeing the bright side. Positive thinking has become a beacon of hope for many but all blind optimism has its consequences, not least a failure to find the real culprits or tackle the real causes at work. Bright-Sided is a call for a clear-eyed assessment of the problems at hand and a return to realism in America.
