Lunch & Lit with May Laura Philpott

Join M Judson for Lunch & Lit with Mary Laura Philpott and her book, Bomb Shelter.


A lifelong worrier, Philpott always kept an eye out for danger, a habit that only intensified when she became a parent. But she looked on the bright side, too, believing that as long as she cared enough, she could keep her loved ones safe, until a horrible morning left her anxious about everything. Leave it to the writer whose critically acclaimed debut had readers “laughing and crying on the same page” (NPR) to explore our protective instincts, the ways we continue to grow up long after we’re grown, and the limits—both tragic and hilarious—of the human body and mind.


Tickets are $45 and include a three course lunch and a copy of Bomb Shelter.
