Anne Lammott, Bird by Bird
I took off work to go see Anne Lamott because after I read her book, I realized I wanted to drink tea in my pajamas with this clever creative woman and needed to tell her so in person (hope it didn’t creep her out). Her son Sam, the subject of her book Operation Instructions, was signing books for a quarter. To this day she remains my favorite writer and her inscription reminds me of our brief tête-à-tête.
