The Breman Museum will present a book talk featuring Bruce Feiler, author of The New York Times bestseller Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age.
Feiler’s new book is well-timed in a way that the Savannah-born author could not even have imagined. When people hear the phrase “life transition,” they think of major shifts often involving personal trauma — from losing jobs to losing loved ones, from ending a career to starting a new one, from marriages to divorce. What Feiler couldn’t have known as he spent several years researching his new book was that it would be released during a worldwide pandemic that has shaken so many people to their core. Now, he observed in a recent interview, “The entire country is going through a life transition together.”
Feiler began his intensive research long before COVID-19 slowed the globe’s roll. Galvanized by a personal crisis, the author of The New York Times bestsellers The Secrets of Happy Families and Council of Dads, spent the last few years crisscrossing the country, collecting hundreds of life stories in all 50 states from Americans who had been through major life changes. He then spent a year coding these stories, identifying patterns and takeaways that can help all of us survive and thrive in times of change.
It makes mastering the skills to manage transitions more urgent for all of us. Feiler does not leave his readers hanging. In Life Is in the Transitions, he opens wide a powerful new tool kit for navigating these pivotal times, laying out specific strategies each of us can use to reimagine and rebuild our lives, often stronger than before.
