Featuring Lorna Landvik—Chronicles of a Radical Hag (with Recipes) | Helen Ellis—Southern Lady Code
Moderator Gretchen Anthony
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.
Announcing the 2019 Cambridge Community-Wide Read! We are delighted to introduce you to first-time Minnesota novelist Gretchen Anthony, author of the new book "Evergreen Tidings from the Baumgartners".
The novel is a humorous Midwestern family drama with a terrific cast of interesting and entertaining characters that remind us of the importance of family to get us through life's surprises and challenges.
Fans of Lorna Landvik will love this book! Save the date for our grand finale event of April 11th. Books are in-stock now at the Cambridge Public Library and Scout & Morgan Books.
Evergreen Tidings makes a wonderful holiday gift!
