Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say, by Kelly Corrigan

Kelly Corrigan crafts a gripping series of personal musings on what it means to connect, grow and learn from one another. A New York Times bestselling compilation of memoirs, the title, Tell Me More: Stories About the 12 Hardest Things I’m Learning to Say, references the chapter titles, which are responses to interactions with people in Corrigan’s life, including “No,” “I Don’t Know” and “Tell Me More.” Each phrase is accompanied by the stories of the pivotal moments that arose from these interactions, in “Tell Me More,” a facialist emphasizes the importance of listening to others, in “I Was Wrong,” Corrigan tells the story of how it felt to own up to her role in a major family feud. Corrigan’s raw and relatable voice connects audiences to this very personal collection of stories. Through each experience retold, she draws detailed, emotional connections to the human experience of being alive and caring for others. “As an author, Kelly can transcribe some of the most increasingly complex idea into simpler thoughts in a way that allows the reader to focus on all the important aspects of their lives,” Famiglio says. “Her voice is authentic and captivates your attention. She’s a modern-day humorist whose beautiful writing is warm and up-lifting.”
