Dan Harris is co-anchor of both Nightline and the weekend edition of Good Morning America on ABC News. He is also the author of 10% Happier, a #1 New York Times bestselling book about a fidgety, skeptical news anchor who stumbles upon meditation. This ancient practice too long associated exclusively with hippies and robed gurus has been shown by modern science to boost resilience, focus, creativity, emotional intelligence, and overall mental and physical health. With meditation also known as "mindfulness" now being embraced by executives, athletes, educators and entertainers, Harris has become a leading voice for pushing for the practice into the mainstream, using plain English and dry humor. He is an excellent speaker for corporations, health and wellness organizations, and schools and universities. In 10 % Happier, Harris tells his story as only a reporter can: through deep research, tough questions, and a healthy dose of irony. The book is part investigation and part immersive journalism: one man's accidental quest to boost his happiness quotient without losing his professional drive. After learning about research that suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines, who are now using it to be calmer, happier, and less yanked around by their emotions. The book takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America's spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives. Additional programming includes Paint Night, Book Discussions, A Writing Contest and Celebratory Reading, Joyful Music with Lisa Yves, Meditation and Yoga with Robyn Parets, a Mindfulness Workshop by the Sharon High School Mindfulness Club and and a Discussion of Mindfulness with a panel of doctors and other experts. See onebookonetown.org for all the details. Arrangements for the appearance of Dan Harris made through Greater Talent Network, Inc., New York, NY
