SLCL Presents Todd Doughty

Thursday, October 21st, 7pm CST
St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, and Left Bank Books present Todd Doughty, "Little Pieces of Hope: Happy-Making Things in a Difficult World."
On March 11, 2020, the day the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic and all of our lives began to change in unprecedented ways, publishing company executive and Southern Illinois native Todd Doughty knew he needed to do something to help him stay connected to the everyday joys of daily life. So he wrote down a list of things that make him happy: The musical intro to “All Things Considered.” Someone forgiving you. Someone believing in you. Freshly cut yellow tulips. A really good burger. Many, many lists later, “Little Pieces of Hope” pulls together the best of Doughty's lists along with essays, musings, prompts, and quotes that offer a daily touchstone of joy in a difficult world. A beautiful keepsake, “Little Pieces of Hope” is brimming with the pleasures of life, inspiring readers to celebrate the good things that surround us.
Books available from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
