In the face of mighty world problems, novelist Annie Proulx says, “The happy ending still beckons, and it is in hope of grasping it that we still go on.” Powerful speech!

“At this year’s National Book Award, lifetime-achievement winner Annie Proulx gave a moving reminder to hope for happy endings, even though we live in Kafkaesque times.” ~ Quartz
