Join Women2Women as we kick off our 8th year of programming. On this night, in partnership with the Junior League of Reading, we will welcome Janice Kaplan, widely known for her achievements as a writer, television producer and magazine editor. She is the author of fourteen books, including the New York Times bestseller The Gratitude Diaries and her latest hit, How Luck Happens.
How Luck Happens
Luck is more than random chance, and in this upbeat talk, Janice Kaplan reveals the principles that allow any of us to create more luck in our lives. She explains the three basic elements that go into creating luck and how optimism is the number one component in making a lucky life. This lively and inspiring talk is filled with examples from top executives and celebrities who Janice has interviewed and shows how we all have more control over our lives than we realize.
As the Editor-in-Chief of Parade, the most widely read publication in America, she attracted some of America's best writers and biggest-name celebrities. Her own interviews with stars including Barbra Streisand, Clint Eastwood, Matt Damon, and Daniel Craig got international attention.
Janice was deputy editor of TV Guide magazine and executive producer of the TV Guide Television Group, where she created and produced more than 30 television shows that aired primetime on ABC, FOX, VH1 and other networks. She began her career as an on-air sports reporter for CBS Radio and went on to be an award-winning producer at ABC-TV's Good Morning America.
In addition to her popular non-fiction, her bestselling novels have been translated and published in more than a dozen countries. She has written hundreds of articles for national magazines and appeared dozens of times on TV shows including Today, Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight and CBS This Morning. Janice graduated magna cum laude from Yale University and won Yale's Murray Fellowship for writing.
