Emmy Award-winning musician and philanthropist Peter Buffett will be signing copies of his new book – Life Is What You Make It: Find Your Own Path To Fulfillment – in New York City tonight at an event to raise funds for Robin Hood, an organization that targets poverty in NYC by finding and funding the most effective programs and partnering with them to maximize results.
Buffett – the son of Warren Buffett – will be joined by Tom Brokaw at the signing event, to take place at the Barnes & Noble Lincoln Center at 7:30pm. Admission is free, and proceeds from the evening’s book sales will go to Robin Hood.
In LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT, Peter shares the important lessons learned from his parents who were determined to instill honorable values in their children. He explains the reasoning behind his father’s decision not to give his children an inheritance and how important it is for each person to define his or her own path, regardless of their wealth or background. Ultimately it is the values—and what we are able to give back—that shape and define us as individuals. LIFE IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT is about transcending your circumstances, taking up the reins of your destiny, and living your life to the fullest.
