An Evening with Anne Lamott

"Stitches; A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair

Hosted by Leah Garchik

"Where is meaning in the meteoric passage of time, the speed in which our lives are spent? Where is meaning in the pits? In the suffering? I think these questions are worth asking." Anne Lamott

Anne is the brilliant author of Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year; Bird by Bird; Traveling Mercies, Plan B; Grace (Eventually); Some Assembly Required; Help, Thanks, Wow; and the seven novels  Rosie, Hard Laughter; Joe Jones; All New People; Crooked Little Heart, Blue Show and Imperfect Birds.

Stitches; A Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair is an honest, funny book about how to make sense of life's chaos.  Anne is one eloquently hip authority on this crucial subject. "I have a lot of hope and faith and I struggle to communicate that."  She emphatically succeeds: in her books and in her talks, she lifts, comforts, and inspires  all the while keeping us laughing.

Lamott has been honored with a Guggenheim Fellowship, and has taught at UC Davis, as well as at writing conferences across the country. Her biweekly Salon Magazine online diary Word by Word was voted The Best of the Web by Time Magazine.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock has made a documentary on Anne entitled "Bird by Bird with Annie."  Anne Lamott has also been inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

Leah Garchik is a beloved veteran columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle.
