Maggie Smith will be in conversation with Karen vanMeenen, Director of Community Reading Programs at Writers & Books
In this deeply moving book of quotes and essays, Maggie Smith writes about new beginnings as opportunities for transformation. This is a book for anyone who has gone through a difficult time and is wondering: What comes next?
“Maggie Smith’s voice is the one I hear in my head, the one that keeps me going when I don’t feel I can. And now, with this book, she has gifted the entire world with that particular brand of magic.”
—Jennifer Pastiloff, author of On Being Human
Maggie Smith is the author of three books of poetry: Good Bones (Tupelo Press, 2017); The Well Speaks of Its Own Poison (2015); and Lamp of the Body (Red Hen Press, 2005). Her latest book, Keep Moving: Notes on Loss, Creativity, and Change (One Signal/Simon & Schuster 2020), a collection of essays and quotes, is a national bestseller. Smith’s poems and essays are widely published and anthologized. Public Radio International has called her poem “Good Bones,” which has been translated into nearly a dozen languages “the official poem of 2016.”
