Friday night I was lucky enough to get a ticket to this event.

One of my favorite authors of all time was speaking, and I had never had the chance to hear her live before. That would be Anne Lamott.

When I was pregnant for the first time, my husband’s friend gave me her book Operating Instructions, which I now try to give to everyone I know who is pregnant. It is at least as valuable as the pediatric and maternal health advice books–and much more important to one’s sanity, I think.

She was just as she seems in her writing–open, honest, and very funny. I decided not to join the line for an autograph, as I thought I’d be standing in it for a very long time, but the evening was outstanding for me anyway. It’s fun to find someone is as cool in person as they are on paper.
