Friday Film



Discovering Anne Lamott was one giant ah-ha moment for me. It all started during my junior (or was it senior?) year of college when I got my hands on Traveling Mercies. Since then, I've followed her work and admired her honesty, humor, and authenticity.

This video is special for another reason, too. The host, Kelly Corrigan, is coming to Richmond on March 21st to speak as part of a fundraising event put on by Jill's Blankets. My mom is heavily involved in this amazing organization that makes and distributes fleece blankets for cancer patients undergoing chemo.

Corrigan will be reading from and discussing her most recent book, Glitter & Glue. And if you can't already tell, I'm going! If you're in or near the Richmond area and interested in attending, please do join us. You can email me at ashelymschneider(at)gmail(dot)com and buy your tickets here.

ps: You can check out more videos from her Medium channel here. She's had an amazing lineup of guests in only two short months. I can't wait to see who else makes an appearance!
