The author of the New York Times-bestselling Anna Pigeon mystery series beckons her readers to share her spiritual search for meaning in life. During her life as an actor, a writer, an adventuress, a non-believer, and a seeker of truth and amusement, Nevada Barr has been cursed and blessed with the question of “why?” Though the things she wanted to know were mostly in the realm of the unknowable, she sought answers through reading, thinking, and talking–looking outward for signs and truths. But she found that while her quest for meaning provided inspiration, it afforded little in the way of proof.
It was then that she began to look inward for answers. Seeking Enlightenment…Hat by Hat is the beguiling story of her journey from arrogance and atheism toward humility and a sense of being part of something greater than herself.
