Gracious by Kelly Williams Brown

Gracious

April 4th, 2017

Kelly Williams Brown was born in southern Louisiana, and have since lived in Mississippi, Oregon, Texas and Washington D.C. She studied journalism at Loyola University New Orleans, and worked as a daily news reporter for seven years before transitioning to copywriting and freelancing.

Her first book was the New York Times-bestselling Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps. Kelly has worked as a long-form features writer, a columnist for The Daily Beast, and cocktail waitress on Bourbon Street. Being featured in  the New York Times, the Today Show, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Esquire, The Boston Globe and many more, and has been translated into seven languages. In addition to her writing Kelly Williams Brown does speaking engagements; my TEDx Talk, “I’m a Millennial, and I am a Monster” was a TED.com editor’s pick of the week.

Kelly enjoys southern cooking, especially gumbo, etouffee, steaks, and stew. In her own words “In my spare time, I like to read, dance, craft, drive to small towns to eat lunch, dress up in folk costume, seek out the few shades of red lipstick that a redhead can reasonably pull off, try new soups, feign interest in sporting events, experience actual interest in curling and gymnastics, and find the oddest and most interesting people possible.”

Her latest novel “Gracious”  is about “practicing the arts of kindness, thoughtfulness, good manners, humanity, and basic decency. As a bonus, it makes your life and even the world (or at least the room you’re in) much lovelier.” Out April 4th wherever books are sold.
