“I make the mistakes so you don’t have to” has been Amy Dickinson’s motto since she began writing her advice column “Ask Amy” almost 14 years ago. A regular panelist on NPR’s comedy quiz show Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, Amy is the perfect mix of relatable, down-to-earth wisdom delivered with her trademark wit and humor.
Amy brings to the stage her own inspiring and comic stories of adventures and misadventures with talks on second chances, reinvention, aging, and community.
“Ask Amy” appears in over 150 newspapers, including The Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post, and has an estimated readership of over 22 million. Her New York Times bestselling memoir, The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, A Daughter and the People Who Raised Them, was called “at once folksy and intelligent” by Publisher's Weekly, “[Dickinson] brings to life all of the struggles of raising a child and the challenges and rewards of having a supportive extended family.”
