Meet Author Susan O’Malley

She is the mastermind behind this “tell it like it is” book of statements that we love.

What advice would your 80-year-old self give you? That is the question artist Susan O’Malley asked to more than 100 people of every age, from every walk of life. She transformed their responses into vibrant text-based images. From a prompt to do things that matter to your heart, to a reminder that it’s okay to have sugar in your tea, these are calls to action and words to live by—heartfelt, sometimes humorous and always fiercely compassionate. This stirring celebration of our collective humanity unveils the wisdom we hold inside ourselves right now.
