LISTEN to today's
conversation with Anne Lamott!

“Every writer, truth-seeker, parent, and activist I know is in love with one or more books by

Anne Lamott… [S]he writes as naturally as she breathes, she explores the mysterious paths

and detours of life itself, and she reports back to make the way ahead easier for all of us.”

—Gloria Steinem, Cosmopolitan

What does hope look like? How do we find and hold onto it in the midst of personal turmoil, communal suffering, global chaos, and the everyday challenges of being alive in this world? Enter the profoundly wise and compassionate Anne Lamott, whose “words heal us all” (Associated Press). ALMOST EVERYTHING: Notes on Hope is an exploration of hope and the place it holds in our lives. Marvelously candid and remarkably perceptive, Lamott shares truths she has learned along the way (“almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you”), offering compelling lessons through memorable storytelling and mixing humor with piercing insight. As Maria Popova says, “Anne Lamott embraces language and life with equal zest, squeezing from the intersection wisdom of the most soul-stretching kind” (Brainpickings).

Anne Lamott speaks with Janeane October 30th as she shares stirring perspectives on:

· forgiveness

· generosity towards oneself and others

· the ways joy can be a radical act

· how “fear, against all odds, leads to community, to bravery and right action, and these give us hope.”

ALMOST EVERYTHING illuminates our human condition as only Anne Lamott can. Like all her best-selling, deeply beloved books, her examination of hope balances “wry, acidic humor with deep feeling” (Boston Globe), making “you laugh at the same time she makes you think” (Denver Post). She “has a gift for putting into words what it means to accept and ultimately embrace the beauty, mystery, and pain that is life” (San Antonio Express-News), and as a reviewer for the Chicago Tribune wrote of her work, “Lamott’s wise counsel…has shaped my brain and heart in ways that are nearly impossible to measure.”

Anne Lamott is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Hallelujah Anyway; Small Victories; Stitches; Help, Thanks, Wow; Some Assembly Required; Grace (Eventually); Plan B; Bird by Bird; and Traveling Mercies, as well as several novels, including Imperfect Birds and Rosie. A past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame, she lives in Northern California and is online @AnneLamott.
