Sociologist, author, and happiness expert, Dr. Carter in conversation with Boston Public Library President David Leonard will reveal how three surprising, science-based strategies can help us lead to our most joyful, productive, and meaningful lives. An audience Q&A session will follow the discussion.

Combining scientific research and practical application, she offers audiences not only a way to cope with modern pressures, but tactics to truly thrive.
