Few movies depict author Brené Brown's concept of "daring greatly" more than the 2014 movie "Wild," starring Reese Witherspoon.

The Hollywood star and the bestselling Houston-based writer are among the keynote speakers announced for this year's Texas Conference for Women, scheduled for Nov. 9.

Other featured speakers include Shawn Achor, author of "The Happiness Advantage,"and comedian and activist Luvvie Ajayi, author of "I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual."

Registration opens May 9 for the daylong Austin Convention Center event, which usually sells out with about 7,500 attendees.

The conference is now in its 19th year. You can find out more about this year's speakers and how to register at txconferenceforwomen.org.
