Special Presentation: Anne Lamott

March 1, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST

This event is online.

A constant reader favorite with over a dozen bestsellers to her name, there’s one Bay Area author who has earned an international reputation for raw honesty and contagious optimism. A specialist on hope during dark times, this is exactly the person we want to hear from when the going gets tough.

For a special, one-of-a-kind, multi-bookstore presentation and book launch, Kepler’s is proud to present the vividly funny Anne Lamott for Dusk, Night, Dawn: On Revival and Courage. For years, our readers have sung the praises of Lamott’s soul-searching and inspiring memoirs—books like Operating InstructionsSmall VictoriesHelp, Thanks, Wow and Bird by Bird. Now, Lamott offers a pathway to rediscovering hope and stability in a world turned upside down. In collaboration with Riverhead Books and other independent booksellers including Vroman’s, Bookshop Santa Cruz and Book Passage, Kepler’s Literary Foundation is thrilled to host this uniquely uplifting hour of conversation.

As bad news piles up—from climate crises to the daily crush of one unprecedented news item after another—how can we cope? Where, Lamott asks, “do we start to get our world and joy and hope and our faith in life itself back…with our sore feet, hearing loss, stiff fingers, poor digestion, stunned minds, broken hearts?”

We begin, Lamott says, by accepting our flaws and embracing our humanity. In a one-hour webinar presentation, the thoughtful, warm, comic, and wise Lamott guides us back to the better angels of our nature.

All tickets include a hardcover of Dusk, Night, Dawn. A *limited* number of signed copies are available on a first come, first-served basis. Pre-order early to ensure a signed copy.

Please note: This event will be pre-recorded and live streamed to ticketholders in a secure webinar at 6pm PST on March 1, 2021. Ticketholders are invited to pre-submit Q&A at the time of registration, and there will be no live Q&A.

This is a very special book launch event, held the evening before the book’s official publication date. Shipping and pickup of books will not take place until after this launch event webinar—more complete book shipment and pickup information will be sent by email to individual ticketholders. Tickets are non-refundable.
