A commencement message for life
If you are a fan of Ann Patchett's beautiful language and subtle humor, you will find this an interesting and entertaining windown into how she writes--and she became a writer. I loved learning, for example, that the stately home in which "Bel Canto" takes place was modeled on the home of the dean at her college.
I downloaded this in hopes of finding a few "life lesson" gems for our son, who is on his way to his first year at Willamette University. My husband and I both listened to it first, and found it to go several steps beyond the usual commencement day admonitions to "aim high" and "work hard" and "follow your passions."
This is a highly pleasant way to spend 50 minutes.

Quick! Read it! Give it to others!
If you could sum up What Now? in three words, what would they be?
Ann Patchett narrates.
What did you like best about this story?
There's something so special about listening to the author narrate his or her own story. And here's the best part - this is more than a story. It's a bit of advice, a personal tale of bump and rise, and even though it's set up as a graduation speech, it's inspirational for everyone.
