Reading Groups are invited to meet with Mary Karr in conjunction with her Square Books appearance Tuesday, July 13. She will be at Off Square Books to read from and/or talk about her brilliant new memoir, Lit, which will be out in paperback June 29.
In an interview with the Oxford Enterprise last year, Richard Howorth spoke of Lit as one of the four books he would enjoy giving to a friend as a gift, saying the title, Lit, is “A triple entendre” – Lit, meaning literature; Lit, as in a state of intoxication; and Lit, spiritually.
Mary Karr is highly regarded for her speaking ability, combining the qualities of humor and blunt, occasionally profane candor with the intellectual and prescient sensibilities of a poet, which she is.
If your reading group would like to meet with Mary Karr, contact Lyn by emailing her at lyn[at]squarebooks.com or calling 662-236-2262.
