She combines hilarious personal essays with bite-size aha concepts to unlock earning potential and get real results.

Jon McCarthy: Hard Roll: A Paramedic’s Perspective of Life and Death in New Orleans

Thursday, April 27th

6-7:30PM

Known as one of America’s most dangerous cities, New Orleans plays host to incidents ranging from the tragic and disturbing to the completely bizarre. Emergency medic Jon McCarthy saw it all. In the aftermath of domestic disputes, suicides, and attempted murders, McCarthy and his partner were forced to overcome their own physical and emotional hardships in order to focus on the very thing that motivated them: saving lives.

McCarthy colorfully chronicles some of the most formative calls of his career, including those that made him laugh and the shocking scenes that made him question the path he’d chosen. Like the job it describes, the book is not for the faint of heart; McCarthy demonstrates with harsh reality that the difficult choice is often the right one. Whether riding the thrill of saving one life or coping with the guilt of losing another, each entry in this collection provides poignant insight into the bonds between medics and their partners, and between a people and their city.

This book is available in paperback ($19.95).

Join Sheryl Sandberg, co-author (with Adam Grant) of Option B, in conversation with Mary Matalin, as they talk about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.

After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Her friend Adam, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are steps people can take to recover and even rebound. Option B combines Sheryl’s emotional insights and Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Sheryl will share what she and Adam learned together about helping others in crisis, developing compassion for ourselves, raising strong children, and creating resilient families, communities and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to ordinary struggles, allowing us to build resilience for whatever lies ahead. They will discuss the capacity of the human spirit to persevere… and to rediscover joy.
