The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild hosted best-selling author Gretchen Rubin for a discussion of her most recent book The Four Tendencies, a ground-breaking analysis of personality types designed to help readers understand themselves and others for healthier, happier, and more productive lives. San Diego book lovers gathered for a casual lunch on the lawn at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe while waiting for their opportunity to interact personally with the author. Once guests were seated in the Inn’s Croquet Room, the bright and charming Gretchen Rubin immediately engaged the audience of 75 with a quick personality survey and a show of hands to determine which of the Four Tendencies best described each attendee. Gretchen explained the personality profiles in detail, offering humorous examples from her own life to encourage and inspire her readers. After a lively presentation and discussion, readers enjoyed a private book signing.

The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild regularly hosts touring authors to meet with those whose lives have been enriched by their writing. For more information on upcoming special events and Author Talks visit or call 858-756-4780.
