Kleenex alert: Anne Lamott's just-released seventh seventh novel, Imperfect Birds, brings back the characters of Elizabeth and the now-teenaged Rosie that were chronicled in Lamott's earlier books Rosie and Crooked Little Heart. Lamott tackles issues of drugs and alcohol that devastates hundreds of thousands of young people, their families, and their communities across the nation each year. From her publisher: "As in her story, addiction in real life often creeps up quietly, insidiously steals away health, wrecks family finances, and--worst of all--shatters trust between parents and children, spouses, and friends."

There's a free event tonight in Pasadena with Lamott at Caltech. (People who buy the book at Vroman's will be given 'preferred admission' tickets for this event, which means they'll be admitted first into the auditorium.)
