Minnesota author Landvik to speak at River City Eatery
Minnesota Author Lorna Landvik comes to River City Eatery in Windom Thursday at 7 p.m., courtesy of Windom Public Library.
Admission is free.
Her appearance is made possible through the state's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, which dedicates funding to preserve Minnesota's arts and cultural heritage.
Landvik was born in North Dakota and lived in East Grand Forks. She has written 10 books, the latest of which is "Once in a Blue Moon Lodge." She will talk about that book, which is something of a sequel to her best-seller, "Patty Jane's House of Curl."
Her next book, "Best to Laugh," will be released in September, along with her previously self-published book, "Mayor of the Universe," which will be re-issued in what she calls, "a spiffed-up, snazzy, typo-free version."
Her early writing influences included Maud Hart Lovelace, who wrote the "Betsy-Tacy" series, and the "Little House on the Prairie" books. However, she says she is convinced that "in a cage match, I believed Caddie Woodlawn would whup Laura Ingalls Wilder."
For more on Landvik and her appearance in Windom, see the story on the Faith & Family page in the May 10 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands tomorrow.
