Marjorie Ingall author of ‘Sorry, Sorry, Sorry: The Case for Good Apologies’
March 6, 2024 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Come participate in the Cleveland Jewish Book Festival and see Marjorie Ingall, author of Sorry, Sorry, Sorry: The Case for Good Apologies!
Drawing on a deep well of studies in brain science, sociology, psychology, law, and medicine, Marjorie Ingall (author of Mamaleh Knows Best, the former columnist for Tablet and the Forward) and Susan McCarthy (co-author of the international bestseller When Elephants Weep) explain why a good apology is hard to find…and why it doesn’t have to be. Alongside a six (and a half!)-step formula for apologizing beautifully, Sorry, Sorry, Sorry delves into research on why good apologies are psychologically difficult; why corporations, celebrities, and governments seldom apologize well; how to teach children to apologize; how to respond to a bad apology; how gender, race, and power affect apologies and forgiveness; and most of all, why good apologies are essential, powerful, and restorative.
