Join us for a Members Only Book Club, hosted quarterly at Américas - River Oaks. This quarter's read is A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life by Brian Grazer and Charles Fishman. So much of the work we do requires us to be curious. In the University of Pennsylvania’s “Authentic Happiness” series, they state that “Curiosity is associated with intelligence and problem-solving ability…and with high performance. There is evidence to suggest an upward spiraling relationship between curiosity and knowledge. The more we learn, the more we want to learn, and so on.” This sounds like most people I have met who are in the fundraising field!!

And of course, see how Brian Grazer has applied his curiosity to create the life he desired in this quarter’s book selection. 

 

The book is available for purchase on Amazon and is also available on Audible.  You can read a positive review of the work here - WSJ: https://www.wsj.com/articles/book-review-a-curious-mind-by-brian-grazer-and-charles-fishman-1429051612


Social Distancing

If we are still social distancing, we will meet from 5:30-6:30 via a Zoom call - we will update this event page and all registered attendees when a decision has been made.

 

Américas - River Oaks

Américas offers valet parking, but also offers free self-parking in the garage behind the restaurant. They have agreed to reserve a table for us to meet in the bar area. All attendees can have a personal tab for their drinks and happy hour snacks. To view the happy hour menu, click here.

 

Special Thanks

Our chapter would like to offer a special thanks to Christine Stevens at the Houston Symphony for organizing this incredible benefit for our membership. We look forward to reading, learning, and discussing with you!
