Sometimes, we just need a fresh start. Even if it seems too hard or too overwhelming; it’s never too late to hit the reset button. Few know this better than bestselling author and “Ask Amy” advice columnist Amy Dickinson, whose new memoir, Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things, is all about second chances and the fine art of starting over.
“Funny, generous, thoughtful, and wonderfully crisp,” wrote Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, “Dickinson’s memoir is one of those tales that makes you proud to be a human–with all our hopes, failures, and graces intact.”
“I make the mistakes so you don’t have to” has been Amy’s motto since she began writing her column almost 14 years ago. Since then, she has helped thousands with her keen understanding and practical advice. With a readership of over 22 million, “Ask Amy” appears in over 150 newspapers, including The Chicago Tribune and The Washington Post.
Bringing her own experiences to the podium, Amy offers down-to-earth perspective on life’s many troubles, with talks on second chances, reinvention, aging, and community. With her trademark candor, humor, and wisdom, she will empower, entertain, and inspire your audiences.Amy Dickinson is also a regular panelist on NPR’s weekly quiz show Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.
