The last time we hosted Patti Digh (Life is a Verb), we had a crowd that filled the auditorium to overflowing! So plan to get here early for her encore visit with an exciting, provocative new book, Creative is a Verb: If You’re Alive, You’re Creative. It’s a book that challenging, warm, funny, smart and packed with sizzle. In this book she leads readers by both heart and mind to acknowledge, reinforce and utilize their own creative spirit. There also are practical exercises to help bring out and savor your artistic impulse. Patti’s first book resulted from a wrenching event in 2003 when her stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer and died just 37 days later. She said she woke up on day 38 and asked a question repeated every morning since: ”What would I be doing today if I only had 37 days to live?” That was the focus of first her blog and then of what became her bestselling book, Life is a verb : 37 days to wake up, be mindful, and live intentionally.
