The Last Letter – with Andy Chaleff

51dgqmntykl-_sx312_bo1204203200_The Last Letter is the true story of healing from loss with an intimacy that has been described as, “vulnerable, brave, powerful.” Come to Old Capitol Books to participate in an afternoon of letter writing, story-telling, and sharing with The Last Letter author, Andy Chaleff.

When: Monday 24 September 2018, 4pm
Where: Old Capitol Books, 559 Tyler Street, downtown Monterey

The last letter is an invitation to write a letter to someone you love. We often take it for granted that people in our life know how much they mean to us.

It’s easy to make assumptions!

This is your moment to change that. Take a piece of paper and find something to write with.

Imagine this is your last letter to a special person. Let your guard completely down. Share what they mean to you. How they have changed your life. How they have helped you become the person you are today.

You have this moment. Take it. Let that special person know. You never know when they will no longer be there to receive it.

The Last Letter is a thirty-year journey to make peace with the past. Andy was born into a family with a loving mother and a violent father. His mother was his rock, his safe place, the person he cherished most. Soon after he graduated high school, she was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Plunged into a deep depression, he spent the next two decades running away from his pain. Eventually, his pain caught up with him. He was forced to confront it once and for all. What he discovered in his healing process is that suffering can be a profound source of guidance and comfort. For much of his life, sadness sabotaged and crippled him. But he learned to transform it into vulnerability and then action. With piercing clarity and refreshing honesty, Andy shares his story to inspire readers to embrace pain and surrender to reality as it is, with all the healing, love, happiness, peace, and freedom that brings.
