Authors visits are exciting.  You might think that working for Random House, we would be bumping into them in the hallways every day.  But sadly we don’t.

So when Peter Buffett visited yesterday to celebrate the publication of his memoir and perform for us, it was amazing.  His music and message are beautiful and inspirational. We’re all still talking about how moving it was.  I started reading it immediately last night. 

I’m happy to share a special treat with one lucky YA librarian – a signed copy! Please explore Peter’s website and let us know which popular musician he has collaborated with to promote his passionate, philanthropic work.

life is what you make it

“Peter Buffett has given us a wise and inspiring book that should be required reading for every young person seeking to find his or her place in the world, and for every family hoping to give its daughters and sons the best possible start in life.”
–President Bill Clinton

“Knowing and admiring Peter as we do, LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT captures his spirit, passion, and values beautifully. As parents, it’s the kind of dialogue about our life’s purpose and opportunity we’re having with our children. We will have everyone in our family read and discuss LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT .”
–Bill & Melinda Gates

“With home-spun, heart-felt wisdom, Peter Buffett ponders how to make a meaningful life, while making a living. LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT is thought-provoking, worthwhile reading.”
–Ted Turner
