Janice Kaplan, Author of The Gratitude Diaries

Janice Kaplan’s inspiring presentation will be based on her New York Times bestseller The Gratitude Diaries. To write the book, Janice spent a year living more gratefully, and her life-changing experiences received international praise. Janice shares advice on how to get a new perspective so you can appreciate the good things that happen—and have a happier, more fulfilling and rewarding life.

In addition to being a popular writer, Janice has enjoyed wide success as a magazine editor, television producer, and journalist. The former editor-in-chief of Parade magazine, she is the author of fourteen popular books including her latest How Luck Happens. She also produced more than 30 network TV specials—and she herself has appeared regularly on TV shows including Today and Good Morning America.  

Janice lives in New York City and Kent, Connecticut.

She will be signing The Gratitude Diaries and How Luck Happens. Pre-order your copy of The Gratitude Diaries below. Available for pick-up at Federation before the event.
