About Gretchen

Gretchen Rubin is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times and international bestseller, The Happiness Project—an account of the year she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studies, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. The Happiness Project has sold more than 1.5 million copies in North America alone, has been published in more than thirty languages, and spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list.

In her New York Times bestseller Happier at Home, Rubin explores how to make home a happier place. Starting in September (the new January), Gretchen dedicates a school year—from September through May—to concentrating on the factors that matter most for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, parenthood, body, neighborhood.

A graduate of Yale and Yale Law School, where she was Editor-in-Chief of the Yale Law Journal and winner of the Edgar M. Cullen Prize, Rubin started her career in law. She clerked for Judge Pierre Leval and was clerking for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor when she realized she really wanted to be a writer. Raised in Kansas City, she lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters.


Admission Fees & Door Policy

Admission fees help cover event logistics, food, drinks, video recording, and more. It's unlikely, but if you'd like to try and see if there's room last minute at the door without an RSVP (no guarantees), there will be an extra $20 added processing/hassle fee at the door. We've had some unfortunate experiences with this in the past, so thanks in advance for your understanding!

    Gretchen was a great speaker - who engaged the audience, shared her time generously and the rest of the group - from Michael Kim to the attendees were all an interesting group to get to know.
