Back with her 20th book, Somehow: Thoughts on Love, Anne Lamott returns to the City Arts & Lectures stage, bringing her empathy and humor to the struggles and transformative powers of love.

Beloved for her enchanting, lyrical writing, Anne Lamott takes on the most complex, intimate parts of life with grace and precision. Lamott’s novels and memoirs have be awarded some of the most sought-after literary prizes, and her collection of essays on writing, Bird By Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, has become required reading for all authors. Somehow: Thoughts on Love, delves into the struggles of love with her trademark honesty and humor, finding the transformative power of intimate relationships. Lamott’s faith and candor, perfected across her long career in literature, are on display as she discusses finding love late in life, the changing ways we love our children, and the ways love can keep us going in a painful world. 

Barbara Lane is the book columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle and the current director of events at Copperfield Books.

Tickets include a copy of Somehow: Thoughts on Love.
