Author Talk: Bill Schuette with Big Lessons from a Small Town

Monday, October 19, 2015 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Our earliest lessons come from those closest to us -- our families, our neighbors and our hometowns. They shape our values and our lives. Small-town America has much to teach us about values, from knowing the importance of family, honesty and hard work, to looking a person in the eye, shaking hands and knowing your work is stronger than any legal document. In BIG LESSONS FROM A SMALL TOWN, author Bill Schuette recounts and reflect on those lessons, beginning as a child growing up in Midland, Michigan, through his national and state public service career, and as a husband and community member. In this candid, sometimes poignant book, Michigan's Attorney General shares the fundamental lessons that have shaped his journey, including how those lessons were tested during both highlights and challenges in his life. Looking back, he shares what he has learned from countless local community and world-famous leaders, providing thoughtful insights and suggestions to better serve, and in turn to be a better leader, regardless of our professional or personal roles.
