NO HAPPY ENDINGS is a book for people living life after life has fallen apart; who know you can move forward without moving on. Life isn’t always happy, but it isn’t the end—there will be unimaginable joy and incomprehensible tragedy through it all. As Nora reminds us, there will be no happy endings, but there will be new beginnings.

Still Kickin Sessions: Let's Talk About Money

What On Earth Is “Financial Literacy” (And How Can I Get Some)? Money. Finances. Budgets. We hate talking about this stuff. We’re intimidated by it. 

That ends now. 

At our third Still Kickin Sessions, our panelists will teach us how to navigate the tricky, sometimes-scary world of financial literacy. Afterward, our friend from YNAB (You Need A Budget) will show us how to use their program and get our moolah organized.

Choose from two ticket options

1. Panel + YNAB workshop

2. YNAB workshop only

"But what if I want to attend just the panel?" You can! Choose ticket option #1 for that (that way, if you change your mind, you'll still have a spot in the second half of the event). Ticket prices are the same across the board.

Class with Nora // This Is Not (just) A Sad Story

SOLD OUT EVENT

Nora McInerny is teaching a 1 day class at The Loft Literary Center!

Everyone has a sad story, but sad stories are rarely only sad. Join memoirist and reluctant grief expert Nora McInerny as she brings her insight, humor and story telling craft to the exploration of stories about the most terrible things in life. Students will learn to use humor, insight and candor as they conquer writing about the most challenging aspects of their own lives and selves.

Using essays from writers like Anne Lamott and Joan Didion, students will explore the multidimensional complexities of living and writing sad stories. How do we deal with our feelings while writing about the most tragic parts our lives? How do we honor our own perspective while writing about others? When does a sad story become tragedy porn and when is it valuable? How do we address the most challenging parts of our selves and our lives with both honesty and empathy?
