Rebecca Walker will talk about her new book, What's Your Story?, written in conjunction with Lily Diamond. Walker is the acclaimed author of Baby Love and Black White Jewish. What's Your Story? is an interactive journal for writers, creatives, scientists, psychologists, lawyers, activists, and anyone who longs to bring a new story to life - and leave behind the tired patterns of their past. Through a series of deeply personal writing prompts, you'll excavate the narrative that has shaped your past and be inspired to write a new, fulfilling story for the future. 

More than a typical journal, What’s Your Story? is an unprecedented tool for self-inquiry and transformation, a method that reveals personal growth is inextricable from collective liberation. The authors, writer and thought leader Rebecca Walker and wellness activist Lily Diamond, spent ten years developing this method of personal empowerment with their readers and students around the world. The result is an interactive process that allows you to choose how your journey will unfold: 

  • Explore by area of life: Each chapter invites you to explore a different area of life as you move through every part of your day—from waking up and experiencing your body, to being in relationship with others and cultivating community, to reflecting on your use of technology and reckoning with your own mortality.
  • Explore by theme: Five themes, color-coded throughout each chapter, allow you to explore a particular focus from beginning to end: creativity and self-expression; self-care; activism; spirituality; and grief, loss, and the work of healing. 

Consisting of 75 profound questions—designed to be answered in as little as five minutes or as long as a lifetime—What’s Your Story? is an essential guide for anyone ready to begin living their most authentic, creative, and meaningful life.
