Read Splendid and Oprah's Life ClassFriday, September 20, 2013
Back in January, I launched the Splendid Book Club and the first book was Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. Over 500 people from around the world participated with us for that particular book and I heard from many of you how much of an impact Brené's work has had on your life as a result.
Earlier this Summer, a producer from Harpo Studios asked me to recommend some members from the book club to be involved in a taping of an Oprah Life Class with Brené Brown. I gave them a few names of people I knew had really resonated with Brené's work and the producers selected Xochitl Gonzalez, from AaB Creates, to participate.
A few weeks ago, Xochitl got to fly out to Chicago for the filming and, because of the format of the class, got to participate on air (I believe her question for Brené had to do with working in an industry driven by a standard of perfection). You can read her recap of her trip here.
The taping was split into two episodes, the first of which will air this coming Sunday, September 22nd on the OWN channel. The second will air next Sunday, September 29th.
