We’re very excited to be able to present, in association with Penguin Random House, a unique, never-to-be-repeated online event with the mega-selling author and superstar Brené Brown, who will be speaking about her brand-new book, Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience. Tickets to this event are available here. A hard cover first edition of the book is included with the price of the ticket. You can choose whether to have the book mailed to you or if you would to pick it up in store. We will email you the link to watch about 48 hours ahead of the event itself.
