Janice Kaplan, Author of The Gratitude Diaries

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

Janice has enjoyed wide success as an author, magazine editor, television producer, and journalist. She is the former editor-in-chief of Parade magazine and has written 14 popular books, including
her latest How Luck Happens. She also produced more than 30 network TV specials—and has appeared regularly on TV shows including Today and Good Morning America.

Janice lives in New York City and Kent, Connecticut.
