"Part Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott."- L.A. Times
“Heather Lende is a terrific writer and terrific company: intimate, authentic, and as quirky as any of her subjects. I don’t want to get creepy here, but I hope that, when the time comes, she’ll look for the good in my life and write my obituary.” -- Marilyn Johnson, author of The Dead Beat
The Big news is that while Find the Good will be "officially" published April 28, 2015 it is already in stores, and has already sold out the first hardcover printing! (Don't worry, they're making more fast.) Please buy it from the independent bookstore nearest you. It is also an audio book from Highbridge that I read, which is really neat.
The big"launch" party in Haines is at the library on the 28th from 5-7 and tickets will be a ten dollar donation to the new expansion project. (The food alone will be worth it, think Tuscan cocktail party without the booze.) I will be touring in Alaska and the Northwest in May (the schedules is below) and reading from my books and talking a bit about Haines on the Holland America ships that dock here each Wednesday all season.
If you'd like an autographed or personalized copy of Find the Good, please email the Haines Babbling Book store at email@example.com for the details. We are happy to help you.
You can reach me through my Facebook page and please check out my blog. There are lots of pictures of home and family as well of news of Haines. I do my best to post a few days a week, sometimes more.
