Author Talk: Lorna Landvik at Christ Lutheran Church

Author Talk: Lorna Landvik at Christ Lutheran Church

The Lake Elmo Library and the Friends of the Lake Elmo Library are thrilled to welcome the one-and-only Lorna Landvik for a special author talk on Tuesday, October 15 at 6:30 p.m. at Christ Lutheran Church (11194 36th St N, Lake Elmo, MN 55042). Landvik is the best-selling author of 12 novels including Patty Jane's House of Curl, Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, Oh My Stars, and Best to Laugh. Her latest book is entitled Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes).

When Haze Evans' column first appears in the pages of the Granite Creek Gazette, she earned fans by writing a story about her bachelor uncle who brought a Queen of the Rodeo to Thanksgiving dinner. Now, fifty years later, when the beloved columnist suffers a massive stroke and falls into a coma, publisher Susan McGrath fills the void (temporarily, she hopes) with Haze's past columns, along with the occasional reprinted responses from readers.  With her customary warmth and wit, Lorna Landvik summons a lifetime at once lost and recovered, a complicated past that speaks with knowing eloquence to a confused present. Her topical but timeless Chronicles of a Radical Hag (With Recipes) reminds us — sometimes with a subtle touch, sometimes with gobsmacking humor — of the power of words and of silence, as well as the wonder of finding in each other what we never even knew we were missing.

Sponsored by Friends of the Lake Elmo Library.
