Smart Bets: Ann Patchett

Nashville-based writer Ann Patchett has authored six novels. But her most recent book is a memoir: This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage. It's "a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination," as Patchett's website explains. It's a love story about more than just the writer's husband, however. She also examines her commitments to writing, family, friends, dogs and books. Patchett's author tour brings her to Asheville on Tuesday, Nov. 5. She'll read and sign copies of her book at UNC Asheville’s Lipinsky Auditorium. 7 p.m., $15 (tickets available at Malaprop's). Photo by Heidi Ross
