Anne Lamott at First united Methodist Church of Ann Arbor Thursday, Oct. 25

Due to demand, the LGBTQ-inclusive First United Methodist Church of Ann Arbor and Literati Bookstore created a second, earlier event in which author Anne Lamott reads from her latest book “Almost Everything: Notes on Hope.” In addition to the original event scheduled on Thursday Oct. 25 at 7 p.m., there is a reading at 4 p.m.
“I am stockpiling antibiotics for the Apocalypse, even as I await the blossoming of paperwhites on the windowsill in the kitchen,” Anne Lamott writes at the beginning of her book. “Despair and uncertainty surround us: in the news, in our families, and in ourselves. But even when life is at its bleakest–when we are, as she puts it, ‘doomed, stunned, exhausted and over-caffeinated’ – the seeds of rejuvenation are at hand.”
Lamott is a New York Times bestselling author of “Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers,” “Bird by Bird” and more. In addition, she’s a Guggenheim Fellow and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame.
The church is located at 120 South State St., Ann Arbor. More information can be found by going online to this link: gaybe.am/IK.
