Anne Lamott

First Baptist Church Decatur, 308 Clairemont Ave., Decatur 30030
Adult (18+)

New York Times bestselling author Anne Lamott returns with Small Victories, a new collection of essays on hope, joy, and grace.

Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It’s an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration and transformation; how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found.

DCPLive: America’s Most Hated Woman?

This past June was the 50-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling against school-sponsored prayer (Engel v. Vitale, June 25, 1962). That’s probably why I saw the book America’s Most Hated Woman:  The Life and Gruesome Death of Madalyn Murray O’Hair  on a cart to be re-shelved recently at the library.
