I was very inspired by her words...doing less and being present to NOW. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have sent it on to others to consider.

The timing couldn't be more perfect... I've been searching for the perfect birthday book for my daughter, who is herself in searching mode these days... I do believe I've found it! (and probably wouldn't have, at least not in time, had it not been for this newsletter)

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Just in time, novelist Patchett's 2006 commencement address at Sarah Lawrence College has been expanded, postscripted and published in a handsome small-format hardcover volume, cleverly designed by Chip Kidd and priced to sell-making it quite possibly the best graduation present on the market (at least until Bird by Bird gets the full gift-book treatment). Personal but direct, with a warm, searching voice, Patchett (Run, Bel Canto) looks at her own struggle with the perennial question 'what now?' and finds some surprising moments of revelation: a conversation with an airport Hare Krishna, a job waiting tables at Fridays and, less surprising, the counsel of friends and teachers Allan Gurganus and Alice Ilchman (the late president of Sarah Lawrence). Wise, illuminating observations abound, putting Patchett's talent for cogent, colorful metaphor to brilliant use: 'Receiving an education is a little bit like a garden snake swallowing a chicken egg: it's in you but it takes a while to digest.' Though Patchett's thesis boils down essentially to 'one must never stop learning,' every example she provides is fresh and worthwhile. A wise, generous and compact primer for life that could well become a touchstone, readers will return to this book, and probably find something new each time they do; deserves to be given often and enthusiastically." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , While grads may have little idea of what's coming next, there's great pleasure to be found in not knowing and not having everything defined. Bestselling author Patchett shares her wit and heartfelt advice in this beautiful gift book that is sure to become a perennial favorite.
"Synopsis" by ,
A book of advice from Merlin, the greatest wizard of all time

Based on an address he gave to students at the University of Oxford in 2013, T.A. Barron, author of the New York Times bestselling Merlin Saga, channels the wizard Merlin and offers advice on how to live a meaningful life.  Divided into sections, each revolving around a magical word, this book poetically explores the concepts of Gratitude, Courage, Knowledge, Belief, Wonder, Generosity, Hope, and Love.  

A gem of inspiration, this is the perfect graduation gift, sure to encourage readers of all ages to live life to the fullest.

Praise for The Wisdom of Merlin:

"Perfect for a graduate's gift."--Kirkus Reviews
