Chronicles of a Radical Hag (Lorna Landvik)Lorna Landvik will be at Wordplay on Sunday, May 12 at 2:15 p.m. for a discussion and signing of her new book, Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes): A Novel. Find more details, including a map and the full Sunday schedule here.

 

"Rules To Live By"

Southerners and Midwesterners alike pride themselves on their modern sensibilities with biting undertones. Essays by Helen Ellis in Southern Lady Code examine the hilarious ways in which a Southerner navigates her way through big city life. Lorna Landvik uses her wit in Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes) to tell the story of local legend Haze Evans after having a stroke. Both of these comedians examine culture and poke fun at two American cultures with strange peculiarities. Both of these authors provide insights into the ways in which, despite our differences, we can look at ourselves and laugh. STAGE: Street: Western Bank Stage.

 

"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
