Our keynote speakers, Ruth and James Pennebaker, know exactly what it is like for a family to tackle breast cancer. In addition to being an author, blogger, New York Times columnist and KUT commentator, Ruth is a breast cancer survivor. Jamie, in addition to being Ruth’s proud husband of 38 years, is Chair of the Psychology Department at the University of Texas at Austin. In his research there, he explores how people deal with traumatic life experiences…and I think breast cancer would certainly qualify.
Ruth Pennebaker’s latest novel is Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakthrough. Jamie, in addition to authoring over 250 scientific articles, recently published The Secret Life of Pronouns: How Our Works Reflect Who We Are.
