Join Anne Lamott, the bestselling author of Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, for an afternoon that includes an onstage interview, a lecture, and a Q&A session. Anne Lamott offers advice on the writing process, while also touching upon the experiences of the writer and the writing life. Writers working at all levels are encouraged to learn from one of the great writers of our time. Anne Lamott taught the first Book Passage writing class almost two decades ago. It’s a joy to welcome her back.
"Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at ourfamily cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead.
Look out for Anne's next book, Hallelujah Anyway, coming April 2017.
