For this week’s Chautauqua Lecture Series #CHQWatchParty, we’re revisiting Arthur C. Brooks' lecture “Work, Life and Happiness After 50: How to go from Strength to Strength,” from Aug. 3, 2018, which closed our week on “The Changing Nature of Work.”

Brooks is Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and Arthur C. Patterson Faculty Fellow at the Harvard Business School. Before joining the Harvard faculty in July 2019, he served for 10 years as president of the Washington, D.C.-based American Enterprise Institute (AEI), one of the world’s leading think tanks. He is the author of several books, including "Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt," and "The Conservative Heart: How to Build a Fairer, Happier and More Prosperous America."

Vice President and Emily and Richard Smucker Chair for Education Matt Ewalt will be on hand to lead and moderate a discussion in the comments section. Please post your thoughts and questions throughout the lecture.

In this time of social distancing, we’re all looking for ways to be connected. To this end, we’re trying something new here at Chautauqua: CHQ Watch Parties, highlighting some of our favorite lectures from the past few years. Once a week, we’ll gather remotely on Facebook to revisit some of the best Chautauqua lectures and programs of the past few years, and to share our questions and comments with each other. We’ve always known how to have a conversation at Chautauqua, and now we’re bringing that conversation into your homes.
