harold kushnerKristin Stratton, a senior from Fort Thomas and a President’s Ambassador, had Rabbi Harold Kushner sign his latest book Overcoming Life’s Disappointments – which features the life of Moses – 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.

Kushner’s nuggets on Tuesday included:

  1. Don’t let someone else – or their rejections – determine your self worth; and
  2. 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.
