Join Anne Lamott to celebrate the release of Dusk, Night, Dawn: On Revival and Courage.

Join the bestselling author of Help, Thanks, Wow as she shares this inspiring guide to restoring hope and joy in our lives in a pre-recorded conversation broadcast live March 1st.

“Anne Lamott is my Oprah.” Chicago Tribune

In Dusk, Night, Dawn, Anne Lamott explores the tough questions that many of us grapple with. How can we recapture the confidence we once had as we stumble through the dark times that seem increasingly bleak? As bad newspiles up—from climate crises to daily assaults on civility—how can we cope? Where, she asks, “do we start to get our world and joy and hope and our faith in life itself back . . . with our sore feet, hearing loss, stiff fingers, poor digestion, stunned minds, broken hearts?”

We begin, Lamott says, by accepting our flaws and embracing our humanity.

Drawing from her own experiences, Lamott shows us the intimate and human ways we can adopt to move through life’s dark places and toward the light of hope that still burns ahead for all of us.

As she does in Help, Thanks, Wow and her other bestselling books, Lamott explores the thorny issues of life and faith by breaking them down into manageable, human-sized questions for readers to ponder, in the process showing us how we can amplify life’s small moments of joy by staying open to love and connection. As Lamott notes in Dusk, Night, Dawn, “I got Medicare three days before I got hitched, which sounds like something an old person might do, which does not describe adorably ageless me.” Marrying for the first time with a grown son and a grandson, Lamott explains that finding happiness with a partner isn’t a function of age or beauty but of outlook and perspective.

Full of the honesty, humor, and humanity that have made Lamott beloved by millions of readers, Dusk, Night, Dawn is classic Anne Lamott—thoughtful and comic, warm and wise—and further proof that Lamott truly speaks to the better angels in all of us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your ticket entitles you to ongoing access to this session — even after the live session concludes.

Please look for an email with information about how to access the course archive within 48 hours of the end of the live session. Once you get it, you’ll have all the information you need to access this course for at least nine months from the live session date — across any and all devices you own.

If you’d like a refund, we can happily credit the card you used to register for the session. Please send a note to pre.event@extendedsession.com, and we’ll confirm receipt as soon as we see it (We don’t need your credit card info – just your email address and date of purchase.)

There are two things to know:

  • Unfortunately, we can only accept cancellations and refunds up to 48 hours before a scheduled session.
  • There is sure to be a lapse in time between the time we refund your order and the time a corresponding credit appears on your credit card statement. So that you’re not left waiting and wondering, we’ll contact you as soon as we’ve processed the credit in our system.

If you’ve purchased a ticket for this online session and you find that for some reason you can’t make the live session, we’ve got you covered:

We’ll make an archive of this session available within 48 hours of the live session, and we’ll send every ticket holder details on how they can view it.

Ticket holders can view this full session archive any time they like – as often as they like.

We take data security and your privacy as seriously as you do.

That’s why we use Stripe to process your registration transaction. They take your credit card and secure your data – in fact we don’t even have access to your credit card number. Which is just the way we like it!

The information we do retain we protect carefully.

We’re committed to keeping personal information collected from those individuals who visit our website and make use of our online programming and services confidential, secure, and private. Our privacy policy ensures that we meet – and when we can – exceed most existing privacy standards.

Want to know more? Read the ExtendedSession Online Privacy Policy Agreement.

Still have a question? We’d be please to hear from you: myfivethings@extendedsession.com.

The receipt you receive via email immediately after you register is all you need to know you’re set for the upcoming session.

About 48 hours before the live session is scheduled to begin, we’ll send you a personalized email confirming everything’s on schedule and containing easy instructions for accessing the session.

We’ll send another reminder on the day of the session itself, and we’ll be available online just before the session begins to make sure you have no problems joining when the time is right.

If you’ve not received confirmation of your purchase, it’s not because we haven’t sent it. In fact, we send a confirmation right away to make sure that we can reach you with session details.

If you haven’t received a confirmation, check your “junk” or “promotions” email first — some people’s email programs group unfamiliar emails in these types of folders. The email date and time should match closely the time you purchased your ticket online.

If the confirmation email is not there, there’s a small possibility that your email address wasn’t entered as you intended when you registered (You’d be surprised, but this happens). If we don’t have your proper email address, we can’t contact you.

In any case, if you can’t find your confirmation email, please send us a note at pre.event@extendedsession.com. We’ll get back to you right away!
