Cancelled - Mary Pauline Lowry
It’s always a pleasure for us to host writers who have spent some time as booksellers, as Mary Pauline Lowry, an alum of Austin’s Book People, has. She’s here to read from her novel, The Roxy Letters (Simon and Schuster), in which Roxy, a some-time vegan working a less than inspiring job at the deli counter at Whole Foods, becomes enraged by the big corporate changes taking place in her hometown. Sound familiar? We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
"Naughty, effervescent fun. A novel abounding in dachshunds, tweakers, real fulfillment centers, aisles of strange beer, and shrines to Venus (they work!). Roxy rocks Austin. And rights the world."-- Joy Williams.
