Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say

What are the deceptively simple phrases that make love and human connection possible? “I don’t know.” “Tell me more.” “I was wrong.” New York Times-bestselling memoirist Kelly Corrigan explores these and more in her inspiring, insightful new book, Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say. Join Corrigan, author of the powerful memoirs Glitter and Glue and The Middle Place, and special guest Andy Laats, for a frank, funny discussion about finding the right words in the right moments — and how, when times are tough, we can all learn what to say. A book signing follows the event.

“The poet laureate of the ordinary.”— HuffPost
“The voice of her generation” — O: The Oprah Magazine
“With full-bodied humor and radical sensitivity, Kelly Corrigan transforms the mundane pain of life into a necessary spiritual text of sorts, one that reminds us that we have the right to grieve but the obligation to be grateful. This book will remind you that you are human—and of the fragile loveliness of being so.”—Lena Dunham
