About the Author

PATTY DANN was cited by New York magazine as one of the oGreat Teachers of NYC.o She has an MFA in Writing from Columbia University and a BA from the University of Oregon. She has taught at Sarah Lawrence College and the West Side YMCA, where she currently teaches memoir classes. Her class used to be limited to students ages fifty-five and over because she found that it often took decades for people to write the truth, but now she opens her classes to all ages. Dann is the author of three novels, including Mermaids, which was turned into a film starring Cher, Winona Ryder, Christina Ricci, and Bob Hoskins, and two memoirs. She is married to journalist Michael Hill and has one son and two stepsons.

Reviews

"Patty Dann has collected 25 years of teaching experience in this generous book of advice to writers. She delivers a series of prompts that open up tiny worlds of memory and feeling. If God is in the details, God is here."--Betsy Lerner, author of The Forest for the Trees "Seamlessly blending writing wisdom with memoir, The Butterfly Hours promises to spark not only your writing, but also your heart. This book is a testament to why writing continues to be one of humankind's most essential superpowers."--Laraine Herring, author of Writing Begins with the Breath and On Being Stuck "If all books could be this wonderful! From the first page, I fell in love with Patty Dann's warm, witty, sound advice and the glimpses into her own life. Refreshingly modest and gently profound, The Butterfly Hours is a treasure--and the perfect present for all who feel they have memories to share. Brava, Patty Dann. I so loved this book."--Elinor Lipman, author of The View from Penthouse B and I Can't Complain
