Thursday, August 7, 7 pm

Join us to listen to her talk about her adventures and to have her sign copies of her book, Some Nerve: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave. Some Nerve has been featured in O Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, Parents, Marie Claire, and USA Today.

“This warm memoir is not a traditional self-help book, yet the joy that Anker and her peers feel when they allow themselves to be beginners – even after the age of 40 – will be motivation enough for can’t-do readers to take steps toward making their lives a little bigger and better.”
- Publishers Weekly, July 29, 2013

“With humor, humility and (most of all) self-compassion, Anker tells a compelling story of everyday courage — one that is sure to touch and help countless other people like her, like me, like all of us who have made worry into an art form. She proves that it’s not too late, that we can truly change ourselves and enlarge our worlds as a result.”
- Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the international bestseller, Eat, Pray Love

 

Patty Change Anker grew up eager to please and afraid to fail, but after thirty-nine years , she decided it was time to stop being a chicken. Motived initially to become a better rold model for her two young daughters, she vowed to face her fears. She learned to dive into a swimming pool, ride a bike, doe a hand stand, and surf (on Lake Michigan at St. Joseph! In winter!). AS she shared her experiences, she discovered that most people suffer from their own secret terrors, and it became her mission to help others do what they thought they couldn't. 

Patty Chang Anker is a former Director of Media Relations for The New York Times and veteran book publicist for W.W.Norton, Taunton Press, and Basic Books. She is also a certified Yoga teacher, Thai Yoga Bodyworker, and Reiki practitioner, who belives in the power of Yoga to uplift and heal. She lives in a village north of New York City with her husband and two daughters.
