Please join us on 2/27/12 at 7pm EST for a conversation about writing and spirituality.
Our guest, Ann Hood, is the author of numerous books in a variety of genres, including the bestselling novels THE KNITTING CIRCLE, THE RED THREAD, and other works of fiction; the memoirs DO NOT GO GENTLE: MY SEARCH FOR MIRACLES IN A CYNICAL TIME, and COMFORT: A JOURNEY THROUGH GRIEF, which was named one of the top ten non-fiction books of 2008 by ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY and was a NEW YORK TIMES Editor's Choice. As well, Hood is the author of a book about the craft of writing and a new adventure series for middle-grade readers. Hood’s essays and short stories have appeared in GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, THE NEW YORK TIMES, LADIES HOME JOURNAL, MORE, TIN HOUSE, PLOUGHSHARES, and THE PARIS REVIEW. She has won a Best American Spiritual Writing Award, the Paul Bowles Prize for Short Fiction, and two Pushcart Prizes.
Author Barbara Lazear Ascher writes of DO NOT GO GENTLE: MY SEARCH FOR MIRACLES IN A CYNICAL TIME: "Ann Hood makes us wake up to the miracles that we often overlook in our search for the Big Miracles. You finish this book, look up, and see your world in a new light."
