Description


Come celebrate our international book launch!!

This is pretty big. I’ve been curating this book for more than two years—fiddling with the right combination of stories, authors, and concepts. If you’ve followed along on the blog then you know I've put my everything into this book. And you’re getting a little of me and fifty incredible authors and stories when you get this book. It was exhausting and wonderful and a once-in-a-lifetime process to produce this book... now it's time to party!

Join us on January 13 for author readings, a book signing, an author Q&A, a special world premiere music video, and a wine and cheese reception. #booyah

I hope you'll join us... it would mean the world to me and the fifty authors.

- Josh Rivedal, author, curator The i'Mpossible Project: Reengaging With Life, Creating a New You



A little about our book: Storytelling is one of our oldest traditions. Stories can make us laugh or cry… or both at the same time. They can teach, inspire and even ignite an entire movement.

The i’Mpossible Project is a collection of powerful stories. They’re gritty, deep, heartwarming—and guaranteed to help you discover new possibilities in your life.

These stories are all about overcoming obstacles, reengaging with life, and creating new possibilities—a son’s homicide, a transgender man finding love, coming back from the brink of suicide, finding your funny in the face of overwhelming odds, and more… If you’re ready to create new possibilities in your life, you need to read this book!

About the Authors

“The authors in this book are some of the strongest, most resilient people I have ever met. They have overcome their son’s homicide and started an LGBT youth suicide prevention hotline and won an Academy Award. They hold top positions at some of the best colleges and universities across the U.S. They are out, proud and starting mini and macro movements because of their story. They are managing physical health challenges and starting online followings to benefit others who are dealing with their same challenge. These folks are remarkable and I’m honored to have them in this book.” http://www.iampossibleproject.com/authorbios
