Chronicles of a Radical Hag (Lorna Landvik)Lorna Landvik will be at the River Falls Public Library on Monday, June 17 at 6:30 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes): A Novel. The event is co-sponsored by Chapter 2 Books, who will be selling copies of the book.

 

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 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.

 

"A comic love letter to journalism and literature, Lorna Landvik’s newest novel is smart, funny, and intimate, with a terrifically memorable cast of small-town characters. Read the book, then head for the kitchen and start baking. Delicious!" —Julie Schumacher, author of The Shakespeare Requirement


"At a time when local newspapers are nearing extinction, and reporters are deemed enemies of the people, Landvik’s smart and lovely paean to journalists is a welcome reminder of the important role they play in the lives of those who depend on newspapers for more than just information." —Booklist
