Let's Read "Stiches" by Anne Lamott

“Lamott’s …most insightful book yet, Stitches offers plenty of her characteristic witty wisdom…this slim, readable volume [is] a lens on life, widening and narrowing, encouraging each reader to reflect on what it is, after all, that really matters.”—People

   What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one other and to what’s sustaining, when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable?

   These questions lie at the heart of Stitches, Lamott’s profound follow-up to her New York Times–bestselling Help, Thanks, Wow. In this book Lamott explores how we find meaning and peace in these loud and frantic times; where we start again after personal and public devastation; how we recapture wholeness after loss; and how we locate our true identities in this frazzled age. We begin, Lamott says, by collecting the ripped shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time.

   It’s in these stitches that the quilt of life begins, and embedded in them are strength, warmth, humor, and humanity.

    I'm really enjoying the book and would enjoy conversation about it. I'm hoping to finish, but may not :( I would hate to miss this one, but don't want to take one of the few openings if finishing the book is required.
    Is it ok to come to the meeting even if I don't finish?

    Ladies, just a quick reminder... They will only seat as many as are present at 7pm, so please be on time. I will arrive early in hopes of decreasing our wait time for a table... FYI, they get pretty busy. Parking in the rear.
