KPR is kicking off our first ever book club with Ladybird, Collected by Meg Heriford, owner of the Ladybird Diner in downtown Lawrence. You can sign up here for our virtual conversation with Meg Heriford at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 31.
Ladybird, Collected is a collection of essays building connections with the diners that have walked in and out of Ladybird Diner's doors over the years. Since the pandemic began in March 2020, Meg has transformed Ladybird into a community kitchen providing free lunches to anyone in need. All proceeds from book sales support their free lunch program.
Our book club host, Kaye McIntyre shares, "I'm so excited to have Ladybird, Collected as our first read. Meg is a really gifted writer and the story behind the book is such a compelling one. As we begin to build our KPR Presents Book Club community, who better to feature than this big-hearted woman who builds community with her food every single day?"
Please submit any questions or comments you have for the author here. We hope you can join us virtually for the event on Wednesday, March 31, at 7 p.m.
