The Four Tendencies Book Discussion Group with Kelly Kandra Hughes

Date: 01/09/2023
Time: 1:00 pm-2:00 pm

Join us virtually at the Norfolk Library this winter as we gain insight into our personality using Gretchen Rubin’s The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles That Reveal How to Make Your Life Better (and Other People’s Lives Better, Too).  Each week we’ll read assigned chapters, reflect on the material, and then come together via Zoom to discuss our insights. Discussions will take place from 1:00-2:00pm on Mondays, from January 9 through February 27. Feel free to join the book discussion at any point on our schedule!

Kelly Kandra Hughes earned her PhD in psychology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and she now works at the Norfolk Library as their Community Engagement & Online Programs Coordinator. At the beginning of the pandemic, she formed a virtual well-being group that has met regularly since March 2020. They’ve tackled decluttering, productivity, happiness, and ethics just to name a few of their journeys. Kelly encourages anyone to join the group at any time for as long as they want — even if it’s just one meeting; and you never, ever have to do the assigned reading!
