Free Library of Philadelphia - Anne Lamott - Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Sunday, November 23 at 2pm
Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace Anne Lamott As she openly and self-deprecatingly describes loss, faith, addiction, and a score of other tough topics, Anne Lamott’s “real genius lies in capturing the ineffable, describing not perfect moments, but imperfect ones…perfectly” (The New Yorker). She is the author of seven novels and six books of non-fiction, including Operating Instructions, an account of life as a single mother during her son’s first year; Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life; Traveling Mercies, a collection of autobiographical essays on faith; and Some Assembly Required, the story of her first year of grandparenthood. Lamott’s new book is a message of hope, forgiveness, and restoration to embrace during the times that test us most. * Book included with ticket purchase Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a TICKETED event; $25 General Admission (includes copy of book).
