Bernadette Murphy: the science behind risk

The Dareful Project

How do we choose growth and risk over the comfort of perceived safety? Author Bernadette Murphy has thought a lot about this question. She's the author of four books, most recently, Harley and Me: Embracing Risk on the Road to a More Authentic Life. She's also author of Zen and the Art of Knitting, and The Tao Gals' Guide to Real Estate. She has served as weekly book critic for the Los Angeles Times and now reviews for Kirkus. For the past 10 years, Murphy headed up the creative nonfiction genre as an associate professor of creative writing for the MFA program at Antioch University, Los Angeles. She recently joined the faculty of the Newport MFA at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EB74E4K/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

Leslie Schwartz, "THE LOST CHAPTERS" w/ Bernadette Murphy

Skylight Books Podcast Series

In 2014, Leslie Schwartz was sentenced to 90 days in Los Angeles County Jail for a DUI and battery of an officer. She served her time at the tail end of a 414-day relapse into alcohol addiction after more than a decade of sobriety. During that year and seven weeks, she was in what she describes as a “chronic state of blackout”--The Lost Chapters. Incarceration might have ruined her, if not for the stories that comforted her while she was locked up-- both the artful tales in the books she read while there, and, more immediately, the stories of her fellow inmates. With classics like Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings to contemporary accounts like Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken, Schwartz's reading list is woven together with visceral recollections of her daily humiliations faced in the county jail system. Through the stories of others—whether rendered on the page or whispered in a jail cell—she learned powerful lessons about how to banish shame, use guilt for good, level her grief, and find the lost joy and magic of her astonishing life. Schwartz is joined in conversation by Bernadette Murphy, author of Harley and Me: Embracing Risk on the Road to a More Authentic Life.
