Kristin Stratton, a senior from Fort Thomas and a Presidentâ€™s Ambassador, had Rabbi Harold Kushner sign his latest book Overcoming Lifeâ€™s Disappointments â€“ which features the life of Moses â€“ after his lecture in Hill Chapel. Joseph-Beth Booksellers, which provides book awards to outstanding seniors on Academic Awards Day each spring, brought the inspirational author to Georgetown College as part of a speakers series partnership.
Kushnerâ€™s nuggets on Tuesday included:
- Donâ€™t let someone else â€“ or their rejections â€“ determine your self worth; and
- sometimes one should let go of a dream, but keep on dreaming.
He is best known for When Bad Things Happen to Good People (1981), a No. 1 best-seller that Georgetown professor Chris Nix uses in his Health Communications class.
