Dinner at the Square: “And The Pursuit of Happiness”

The Village Square

Location: In Person

211 North Monroe Street
Tallahassee, FL, 32301

It’s easy to lose touch with just how extraordinary it is that America’s charting Declaration named “the pursuit of happiness” right up there with life and liberty as our opening argument to stick it in the king’s eye. So are we happy? If you look at objective measures of late, the answer is “no.” And our sense of it is that if “we the people” are miserable, this can’t be good for the American experiment.

We hope you’ll join us as we become bound and re-determined to be happy. And we’re beyond delighted to announce that our special guest in this journey is the extraordinary Arthur Brooks—a one man beacon of inspiration toward both happiness and radical decency in politics. This former AEI President, bestselling author, Atlantic columnist and Harvard professor is devoting the most recent chapter of his extraordinary career to discovering how to live our best lives. Fresh off the release of his most recent book, “From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life,” Brooks is making one of his first stops to see us.

Arthur is the bestselling author of 11 books on topics ranging from economic opportunity to human happiness. His most recent bestseller, Love Your Enemies, released in March 2019, is a guide to building a better country and mending personal relationships amidst our culture of political polarization. In February 2022, Arthur will release “From Strength to Strength,” a new book on finding meaning, success, and deep purpose in the second half of life.
