Arts & Letters Live is a literary and performing arts series for all ages that features award-winning authors and performers of regional, national, and international acclaim. The series is recognized for its creative multidisciplinary programming—combining literature with visual arts, music, and film—and for commissioning new work from musicians, dancers, and poets, inspired by works of art in the Museum's collection and special exhibitions.
In the highly anticipated follow-up to his New York Times bestsellers «The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness,» Shawn Achor reveals in his latest book that success and happiness are not competitive sports. Rather, they depend almost entirely on how well we connect with, relate to, and learn from each other. «Big Potential: How Transforming the Pursuit of Success Raises Our Achievement, Happiness, and Well-Being» illustrates how just as happiness is contagious, every dimension of human potential—performance, intelligence, creativity, leadership ability, and health—is influenced by those around us. A native Texan who spent twelve years at Harvard University, Achor has become one of the world’s leading experts on the connection between happiness and success. His TED Talk is one of the most popular of all time, with over 13 million views, and his lecture airing on PBS has been seen by millions.
