Each second of the day, someone in America faces a crisis, whether it's a car accident, violent crime, serious illness, or financial trouble. Given the inevitability of adversity, we all wonder: Who beats the odds and who surrenders? Why do some people bounce back and others give up? How can I become the kind of person who survives and thrives? The Survivors Club by author Ben Sherwood reveals the hidden side of survival and gives a much needed edge when adversity strikes. All are welcome to attend. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
