Athenian Dialogue: Greenlights VIRTUAL

Thursday, April 4, 2024

Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey Offered by: Virginia Municipal Clerks Association (VMCA) Institutes and Academy Hosted by: Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Facilitated by: Janice Bates, MMC

Matthew McConaughey’s "Greenlights" is not a conventional memoir. As he neared age 50, the Oscar-winning actor revisited the journal that he had kept for the previous 35 years to see what he could learn from it. The result is this book, which combines hard-earned insights about the art of living with vivid accounts of McConaughey’s upbringing in rural Texas, his adventures in the movie business, his global travels, and his lifelong search for love and fatherhood. Part autobiography and part life-guide, "Greenlights" both explains and illustrates McConaughey’s philosophy of “catching greenlights”—recognizing and even creating those moments when life says “yes” and you cruise into success as you pursue your destiny. Matthew believes the positive aspects of a person’s life can be explained by the concept of “greenlights.”
