Join local writers Christina Fisanick and Laura Jackson Roberts for a bit of lighthearted literary levity at Lunch with Books on June 2. Christina and Laura will share original works, none of which will address pandemics, politics, or polemics. We swear.
Instead, consider the white-tailed deer as she munches through your garden or the June bat that dive bombs your head. Consider the Roomba as the answer to all of your marital woes. Ponder the process of wheeling a stainless steel gas grill down Edgington Lane and hefting it onto a back deck with your cantankerous spouse.
We can't make quarantine go any faster, but we might make it a bit funnier.
