Acclaimed writer Anne Lamott makes her second trek to Decatur First Baptist Church this year Monday night at 7 with a happy "accident" of a book, "Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers." Back in June, the beloved author of "Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year" packed the house with its sequel, "Some Assembly Required: A Journal of My Son's First Son" with Sam Lamott, the now-grown subject of "Operating Instructions." During their national book tour together, Sam urged mom to "get with it" and created Facebook and Twitter accounts for her to chronicle their adventures. Her Facebook status updates/miniature essays now entertain more than 87,000 fans. Before hopping a flight to Atlanta, Lamott discussed her slim new 103-page essay on prayer during two days off tour relaxing at home in Northern California.
Traditionally, New York Times bestselling authors go the sequel route after their sprawling 883-page intergenerational novel about moralistic Colombian drug lords hits the remainder table prior its publication date. Anne Lamott, the beloved writer behind the 1993 perennial parenting gift “Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year” had a more organic reason for writing “Some Assembly Required” (Riverhead Books, $26.95).
