Marion Winik at BookWoman This Weekend

One of Austin's favorite former residents returns for a reading

Marion Winik at BookWoman This Weekend

Although Marion Winik (The Glen Rock Book of the Dead) hasn't lived in Austin for years, the memoirist/NPR commentator/former Chronicle contributor is still awfully beloved in these parts, and rightfully so: She's a funny and candid chronicler of her life (which has been rocked by the kind of tragedy that would render most people mute). She's terrific in person, too, which is why we heartily recommend you to her reading at BookWoman this weekend.

The particulars: Sunday, May 24, 3pm at BookWoman (5501 N. Lamar Blvd. #a-105)

And here's a link to the interview we ran in advance of Winik's appearance at last year's Texas Book Festival and Austin Jewish Book Fair.
