EVENT OVERVIEW:  Anne Lamott will present her Bestselling Book Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son's First Son.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Anne Lamott is the author of the New York Times Bestsellers: Help, Thanks, Wow; Some Assembly Required; Grace (Eventually); Plan B; Traveling Mercies; and Operating Instructions, as well as several novels, including Imperfect Birds, Rosie and Crooked Little Heart.  A past recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and an inductee to the California Hall of Fame, she lives in northern California.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  In Some Assembly Required, Anne Lamott enters a new and unexpected chapter in her own life: grandmotherhood.  Stunned to learn that her son, Sam, is about to become a father at nineteen, Lamott begins a journal about the first year of her grandson Jax’s life.  In careful and often hilarious detail, Lamott and Sam, about whom she first wrote so movingly in Operating Instructions struggle to balance their changing roles.  By turns poignant and funny, honest and touching, Some Assembly Required is the true story of how the birth of a baby changes a family as this Book will change everyone who reads it.
