An Evening with Fannie Flagg


October 27, 2020 in Virtual Event

Iced tea. Mashed potatoes. Fried green tomatoes. Welcome to Whistle Stop.

In trying times, who doesn’t want to seek refuge in the warmth, familiarity, and easy lifestyle of a small town? The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop, the new novel from beloved Southern storyteller Fannie Flagg, couldn’t come at a better time. Join us on Tuesday, October 27 at 8:00pm ET on Zoom for An Evening with Fannie Flagg to celebrate the launch of The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop. In conversation with southern novelist, Lisa Patton, Fannie will discuss her inspiration for the novel, what she finds so compelling about small towns like Whistle Stop, and why we need to lean on our neighbors more than ever. Pour yourself a cup of sweet tea and settle in for an evening of stories, laughter, and love.

When you sign up to attend, you will have a chance to submit a question for Fannie ahead of the event. If your question is selected, you will get to appear onscreen during the event to ask it “face to face.” (You will be notified ahead of time if your question is chosen.)
