National Public Radio member station WSHU Public Radio will hold a special event featuring author and composer Peter Buffett, son of investor Warren Buffett, for a talk about his new book, Life Is What You Make It, on Tuesday, May 18, 2010, at 7:00 pm, at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT. This event is part of WSHU’s popular lecture series, “Join the Conversation,” which brings prominent authors to the community for engaging, thought-provoking discussions. This event is free and open to the public; a book signing will follow his talk.

Most people probably think having billionaire investor Warren Buffett as a father makes life far from average. Join WSHU when Peter Buffett, an Emmy-Award winning musician, songwriter, producer, and composer, shares the important lessons he learned from his parents, as well as explains how success has more to do with building character than simply using a family platform to get ahead. He will also discuss the reasoning behind his father’s decision not to give his children an inheritance and the importance of defining a path to follow, regardless of wealth or background.
