Think Out Loud

Rebroadcast: Ann Patchett Talks About Writing, Marriage And More

Last month Think Out Loud’s Allison Frost sat down with celebrated author, Ann Patchett, and an audience at Portland’s Literary Arts.

Photos from the Think Out Loud with Ann Patchett recorded in front of a live audience at the Literary Arts space in downtown Portland.

Patchett may be best known to many for her award-winning novels — like Bel Canto and State of Wonder  — or her non-fiction work, Truth & Beauty. But this year she brought something new to bookstore shelves: a collection of essays called This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage. It’s made up of articles she’s written for the likes of Atlantic Monthly, Vogue and Outside.

Are you a fan of Patchett’s work? What’s your favorite?
