An Evening with Anne Lamott

Folsom Lake College Speaker Series
Stage 1
Jump to Event Times

“Kindly and self-skewering, Lamott has been doggedly chronicling the messy stuff of life — refracting her own complicated stories of addiction and loss — in mordantly comic and sharply observed memoirs and novels for over three decades. But she hadn’t planned on a career as an inspirational speaker and author…”
- New York Times

Anne Lamott writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. She brings a self-effacing humor – she is laugh-out-loud funny – and ruthless honesty to every lecture.

Event Length (Approximate):

1 hour
followed by 20-30 minute Q & A

“Anne Lamott is practically a household word in the peeling-back-the-soul department. She’s utterly disarming. She’s hysterically funny. One minute, you’re falling off your chair laughing, and the next, you’re gasping for air, because Lamott has just unfurled a sentence that cuts straight to the heart of what you really needed to know” (Chicago Tribune). Anne Lamott writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. But armed with self-effacing humor – she is laugh-out-loud funny – and ruthless honesty, she doesn’t try to sugar-coat the sadness, frustrations and disappointments of life, but tells her stories with honesty, compassion and a pureness of voice. Winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Anne Lamott is the author of seven novels (Hard Laughter, Rosie, Joe Jones) and several bestselling books of nonfiction, including Operating Instructions, an account of life as a single mother during her son’s first year; Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son's First Son; and the classic book on writing; Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. Her lectures are much loved and tickets will go fast.
