Marianne Williamson was born on July 8, 1952 in Houston, Texas. In 1971, she went on to attend but not graduate from Pomona College. A few years after leaving Pomona, Williamson became a spiritual lecturer and advisor. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, an organization that provides meal to those suffering from illness. In 1992, Williamson wrote her first book, A Return To Love. The book became a New York Times bestseller and was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She has since published 12 other books and has become a well-known lecturer. In 2014, she launched a failed bid for the U.S. House of Representatives from California’s Thirty-Third Congressional District as an independent. Williamson lives in California and has an adult daughter from her previous marriage.
