44 Lessons From A Loser: Sonya Jones Book Signing Dec. 6

Jones-BookCover-webThe Greenville University Alumni Association will host a book signing featuring alumna Sonya Jones ’96 to celebrate her new book, 44 Lessons from a Loser: Navigating Life Through Laughter, Prayer and the Occasional Throat Punch (Author Academy Elite, 2018).

The signing takes place on campus at the Watson and Bonnie Tidball Alumni House Thursday, December 6, from 4 to 8 p.m. The public is invited.

Jones won the hearts of millions of Americans when she dropped 144 pounds on Season 16 of NBC’S reality TV show The Biggest Loser. Now, her positive outlook and tremendous work ethic serve as encouragement for others who face tough challenges.

In 44 Lessons, she invites readers to discover goodness in struggle. She helps us see:

  • God has a specific plan and purpose for our lives.
  • Laughter truly is the best medicine.
  • We are stronger than we know and better than we believe.
