Year of Yes
Author: Shonda Rhimes
Call Number: 808.22 RHI
About This Book: Rhimes, the creator/producer of such intelligent TV shows as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" is not only wiser, funnier, and cooler than your average therapist - she's also been there, if "there" is the land of the angry, scared and emotionally dysfunctional. Never mind that she graduated from Dartmouth, is a proud and loving mother to her three kids, AND owns Thursday night TV, Rhimes was a mess until her sister made a chance remark at Thanksgiving - "You never say Yes to anything." That's when Rhimes decided not only to face her fears but to hug the live out of them. Rhimes found that saying Yes sometimes, paradoxically, also meant saying no, too.
Be sure to checkout this time from the library and then come ready to discuss it with other avid readers in the community at our next club meeting on Thursday, October 20 at 7:00PM.
