NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Advice for graduates and reflections on staying true to yourself from the beloved Gilmore Girls actress and New York Times bestselling author of the memoir Talking as Fast as I Can and the novel Someday, Someday, Maybe. "If you're kicking yourself for not having accomplished all you should have by now, don't worry about it. Even without any 'big' accomplishments yet to your name, you are enough." In this expansion of the 2017 commencement speech she gave at her hometown Langley High, Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, reflects on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now. "Whatever path you choose, whatever career you decide to go after, the important thing is that you keep finding joy in what you're doing, especially when the joy isn't finding you." In her hilarious, relatable voice, Graham reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes us or what we've yet to achieve. Grounded and inspiring-and illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herself-here is a comforting road map to a happy life. "I've had ups and downs. I've had successes and senior slumps. I've been the girl who has the lead, and the one who wished she had the bigger part. The truth? They don't feel that different from each other."

"Actress and author Lauren Graham, best known for her work on TV's "Gilmore Girls" and "Parenthood," gives a warm, cheerful performance of her brief audiobook. The work is based on the 2017 commencement address Graham gave at her high school alma mater. In it she reflects on her high school experience as well as other successes and failures, advising graduates to "find joy in what you're doing, especially when the joy isn't finding you." Listeners familiar with Graham's frenetic portrayal of Lorelai Gilmore may be surprised by her relatively subtle performance here. Graduates and others approaching significant life transitions will be buoyed by her down-to-earth tone and upbeat advice. E.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
