Event Details


Hosted by Tim Washer

Join therapist and Ridgefield resident Niro Feliciano & former Saturday Night Live writer Tim Washer, along with American Idol finalist Kimberley Locke and The Ridgefield High Dance Team as they celebrate positive ways to find true contentment, and focus on life skill hacks that every person (teenager and adult) should know. When people find out she is a therapist, Niro Feliciano knows she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. At soccer games, at cocktail parties, in waiting rooms, people corner her and ask: Why am I so stressed? Is the way I feel normal? Why can’t I just be happy?

The truth is happiness is fleeting, and we are stressing ourselves out trying to achieve it. This Book Won’t Make You Happy offers a path, instead, to contentment, a deeper, more satisfying state of living. By embracing eight simple, research-based postures we can move away from anxiety toward balance and calm. Because the Arts are a surefire way to bring joy into your life, in addition to hearing Niro’s skilled advice, American Idol alum, singer Kimberley Locke will sing some of her favorite songs that boost her mood, and the newest Woodland Regional Dance Competition and New England Interscholastic Dance Championship winners, the Ridgefield High School Dance Team, will raise your spirits with their award winning hip hop dances and other great moves. Hosted by stand-up comedian and former writer for Tina Fey & Saturday Night Live, Tim Washer.

A percentage of all book sales and ticket proceeds will go to Kids in Crisis – which provides emergency shelter, crisis counseling, and community education programs for children of all ages and families facing crisis.
