Oakland - Publication Party for "A Million Tiny Things" with Kenna Lee

Oakland Events

Kenna Lee at Diesel Bookstore Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes local author Kenna Lee to the store to celebrate the publication of her new book, A Million Tiny Things, on Friday, May 11th at 7pm.

A Million Tiny Things chronicles the escapades of a wannabe "green mom" trying to keep her sense of humor while hanging on to a lifeline (or at least a laundry line) of hope. With a willful optimism, she travels the long road from eco-overwhelmed to self-forgiveness via the belief that large numbers of small pro-environment actions can add up to a better world. "As a mother and a citizen of the 21st Century, Lee takes on the issues of our day, informing the reader, but also inviting a laugh at the absurdity of having to navigate myriads of tiny, daily decisions that could determine the future of the planet." -- Kaitlin Quistgard, editor in chief, Yoga Journal

Full-time nurse, part-time environmentalist, and all-the-time mother Kenna Lee lives in Sebastopol with her three semi-feral children and several domesticated animals. Tortured by the distance between her suburban lifestyle and her perceptions of "right living," Kenna began writing about mothering in the era of global warming, only to discover that her work struck a deep chord in her community of mothers. Her personal essays have been published in Brain, Child, Amoskeag (global warming issue), Midwifery Today, Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care Nurses, American Journal of Nursing, and Northern California Bohemian, as well as aired on the KQED Perspectives series.
