Marietta makes her first trip to Cincinnati as the keynote speaker for the Xavier University Counseling Department's 40th Annual Winter Conference. Co-sponsored by the Greater Cincinnati Counseling Association, she joins a gathering of school and clinical counselors, educators, students, and Xavier alums, among others. Marietta kicks off the conference and a new year on Friday afternoon by sharing the secrets of the "10 Ideas That Matter Most" from her national award winning book How Philosophy Can Save Your Life. (A copy of the book will be given to all participants.) On Saturday morning, Dr. Brent Richardson, Chair of the Xavier Department of Counseling, will offer workshop participants his "Keys to Surviving and Thriving." Dr. Richardson is the author of Working with Challenging Youth: Seven Guiding Principles. For Saturday afternoon’s final session, Marietta explores the beauty of "The Art of Clear Thinking." The conference is open to all.

On Friday morning, January 8 she will sit in a circle of 3rd graders at Evanston Academy, a public elementary school near Xavier. What a fine way for her to begin her visit, as she shares the topic of Simple Pleasures with a group of "little big minds."
