River Readings: Jessica Lamb-Shapiro

Author Jessica Lamb-Shapiro delivered the second River Readings of the school year on Jan. 27.

She has published fiction and nonfiction in The Believer, McSweeney's, Open City and Index magazine, among others.

Her first book, "Promise Land," is a tour of the billion-dollar self-help industry that explores American devotion to self-improvement — even as the author attempts some deeply personal improvements of her own.Watch the video
