Join bestselling author J. Ryan Stradal to discuss his third novel, Saturday Night at the Lakeside Supper Club, a celebration of food and drink across four generations in Minnesota. J. Ryan contrasts four female voices, four decades, and two restaurants, one a traditional supper club, and the second a chain restaurant, similar to a Denny's. The result is an exploration of our times and our evolving relationship with food and drink, health, and community. J. Ryan also discusses his writing during the pandemic and thoughts about characters and editorial choices. We also manage to talk about culture, deer, smoking, heritage, and a little bit about politics. Don't miss this lovely warm conversation, and don't forget to pick up a copy as a gift for your favorite food lover.
