Lowcountry Mental Health Conference Presents A Candid Conversation with Anne Lamott!

Thu, Jul 27, 2023 at 10:30am

This event has passed.

We are very excited to be offering an à la carte ticket option to see bestselling author Anne Lamott on July 27 when she visits Charleston as part of the Lowcountry Mental Health Conference!

Anne Lamott will share her candid thoughts on life’s challenges and how we all might come to face them courageously. Anne writes and speaks about subjects that begin with capital letters: Alcoholism, Motherhood, Jesus. But armed with self-effacing humor – she is laugh-out loud funny – and ruthless honesty, Lamott converts her subjects into enchantment. Actually, she writes about what most of us don’t like to think about. She wrote her first novel for her father, the writer Kenneth Lamott, when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. She has said that the book was “a present to someone I loved who was going to die.” In all her novels, she writes about loss – loss of loved ones and loss of personal control. She doesn’t try to sugar-coat the sadness, frustration and disappointment, but tells her stories with honesty, compassion and a pureness of voice. As she says, “I have a lot of hope and a lot of faith and I struggle to communicate that.” Anne Lamott does communicate her faith; in her books and in person, she lifts, comforts, and inspires, all the while keeping us laughing.
