Lessons for Life is the topic of Ursuline College’s "Evening with Regina Brett" on Thursday, March 24, from 7 to 9 pm at the school's Fritzsche Center.
New York Times-bestselling author of God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours and Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Regina Brett will speak on the lessons she has learned throughout her lifetime.
A two-time finalist (in 2008 and 2009) for the Pulitzer Prize in Commentary, Brett has gained a national following. Her Plain Dealer columns are posted on refrigerators, tucked into wallets, quoted from pulpits, clipped, Tweeted, snailmailed and emailed around the world.
Brett’s most popular column, "50 Life Lessons," is about faith and family, about the lessons her bout with cancer taught her and the ones she learned growing up in a family of 11 children and as a single parent for 18 years. "It turns out those personal life lessons were universal truths," Brett has said. That column became an Internet sensation, emailed around the globe, attracting international attention and leading to the publication of God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours.
Sponsored by the Ursuline College Alumnae Association, the program cost is $25 and includes dessert and coffee. Fireside Bookshop will be on hand to sell Brett’s book and she will be signing them after her talk. For reservations, call 440-646-8375. Ursuline College is located at 2550 Lander Road in Pepper Pike.
