An Evening with Author Anne Lamott
TUE, APR 24
“A writer who has perfected the art of saying the unsayable.” The New York Times
“Patron saint of writers everywhere.” The Washington Post
Profound, caring and hopeful, author Anne Lamott is known for addressing complex subjects like addiction, motherhood and faith with self-effacing humor and ruthless honesty. Her wisdom and forthrightness has made her an “icon of blessed imperfection [whose] classics like Operating Instructions and Bird by Bird have become handbooks for parents and writers whose lives lean toward the joyously messy” (Salon.com). Lamott’s numerous works of fiction and memoir include Grace (Eventually), Traveling Mercies and Imperfect Birds. With her latest, Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy, Lamott ventures to explore where to find meaning in life.
