Katie Couric to Sign Copies of and Speak About Her New Book “The Best Advice I Ever Got”
at Talbots Design Concept Store
WHO: Emmy-award winning journalist Katie Couric
WHAT: Will sign copies of her new book, “The Best Advice I Ever Got,” speak with customers, and share personal anecdotes about the experiences she drew upon to write this book during a special event at Talbots’ new design concept store. The first 200 customers will receive a free copy of the book for Katie Couric to sign.
In this inspiration-packed book, Katie Couric reports from the front lines of the worlds of politics, entertainment, sports, philanthropy, the arts, and business—distilling the ingenious, hard-won insights of leaders and visionaries, who tell us all how to take chances, follow our passions, cope with criticism, and, perhaps most important, commit to something greater than ourselves
Among the many are financial guru Suze Orman on the benefits of doing what’s right, not what’s easy; director Steven Spielberg on listening rather than being listened to; quarterback Drew Brees on how his (literal) big break changed his life; and novelist Curtis Sittenfeld on the secrets of a great long-term relationship (she suggests marrying someone less neurotic than you); not to mention:
*Michael Bloomberg: “Eighty percent of success is showing up . . . early.”
* Eric Stonestreet: “Remember that the old lady who’s taking forever in line is someone’s grandma.”
* Jimmy Kimmel: “When in doubt, order the hamburger.’”
*Madeleine K. Albright: “Never play hide-and-seek with the truth.”
Katie Couric’s profits from the book sales will be donated to Scholarship America, a nonprofit scholarship and educational support organization that also benefits from the Talbots Scholarship Foundation.
