On March 11, 2020, the day the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic and all of our lives began to change in unprecedented ways, Todd Doughty knew he needed to do something to help him stay connected to the everyday joys of daily life. So he wrote down a list of things that make him happy: The musical intro to “All Things Considered.” Someone forgiving you. Someone believing in you. Your foot sticking out from under a blanket in order to find the cool spot. Freshly cut yellow tulips. A really good burger.

Many, many lists later, Little Pieces of Hope pulls together the best of Doughty’s lists along with never-before-seen entries, essays, musings, prompts, quotes, and playlists that offer solace, connection, and a daily touchstone of joy in a difficult world.

A beautiful keepsake full of gorgeous illustrations, Little Pieces of Hope is brimming with the pleasures of life, inspiring readers to look for and celebrate the good things that surround us.

“Need a little bit of cheering up? So do we all! Here comes LITTLE PIECES OF HOPE, begun by Todd Doughty as a way of keeping his chin above the gloom water in Covid. Read on, then start your own list!” - Margaret Atwood, via Twitter

"The book is all about boiling life down to what really matters, and its simplicity is part of its bountiful charm. It’s remarkable, really, that Doughty could up with this many happy-making things.” - Associated Press

“Todd Doughty gives us permission to have pleasure. Little Pieces of Hope is part meditation/part celebration, a running thank-you note, a time machine that swings us from the Day-Glo 80s to a soft focus future, a to-do list that guarantees you’ll never be bored, a mixed-tape from a person you want to be your very best friend, a rabbit hole to Wonderland and we are all Alice. Part recovery/part discovery, this book is a gift for friends, family, and most especially yourself.” - Helen Ellis, author of Bring Your Baggage and Don’t Pack Light
