The Year of Living Virtuously: Weekends Off

Feb 12, 2015

Thursday, Doug’s guest is Utah author and artist Teresa Jordan. Jordan was searching for a project to get her writing muscles back in shape, when she learned about Benjamin Franklin’s project “of arriving at moral perfection.” His idea was to master a list of thirteen virtues. Jordan decided to try it herself (after throwing in a few vices), and blog about it. She’s now published a memoir of her “Year of Living Virtuously,” and we’ll talk about why neither she nor Franklin achieved perfection.

Teresa Jordan is the author of Riding the White Horse Home [Indiebound|Amazon], Cowgirls: Women of the American West [Indiebound|Amazon], and her most recent The Year of Living Virtuously: Weekends Off [Indiebound|Amazon]

On Friday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m., Ken Sanders Rare Books presents an evening of songs and stories with Teresa Jordan and Hal Cannon. [More information]
