Every Little Thing by Tracey O'Shaughnessy
Join us for a reading, discussion, and book signing of "Every Little Thing" by Tracey O'Shaughnessy which contains a collection of some of her finest writing, as well as columns that many of her loyal readers have proclaimed as their favorites of her work.
As Charles A. Monagan, Waterbury resident and editor of Connecticut magazine has said, "I am one of the lucky ones who get to read Tracey O'Shaughnessy's essays every week in my local Sunday paper. Her writing is colorful and intelligent, and her thoughts on home and faith are amusing, provocative and often moving."
Her "Sunday Reflections" column - many installments of which appear in "Every Little Thing"- was singled out for the prestigious Wilbur Award by the Religion Communicators Council in both 2001 and 2003; and earned awards in 2005 and 2006 for Best Opinion Writing on Religion Award from the American Academy of Religion. She has won a Clarion Award for her writing on women, and her work has also won numerous top honors from the New England Associated Press News Executives. Most recently, she received the 2008 Missouri Lifestyle Journalism Award."Every Little Thing" is dedicated to the author's grandmother, Hazel Lynch O'Shaughnessy, who always wanted to hear "every little thing" about her granddaughter's life.
