Author Event: Patricia Hampl

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Patricia Hampl is one of those rare authors who holds perennial appeal with general audiences, but is also beloved by writers everywhere: “lyric, cerebral, and a boon companion at any stage of the writing journey” (Ploughshares). In her debut memoir and travelogue, A Romantic Education (1981), Hampl explores her Czech heritage. Her equally poignant follow-up, Virgin Time (1992), turns the spotlight to her Roman Catholic upbringing and the author’s quest for spiritual fulfillment beyond religious dogma. Hampl, a three-time Minnesota Book Award winner and professor at the University of Minnesota, is back in 2018 with The Art of a Wasted Day. Like her other masterworks, The Art of a Wasted Day is difficult to pigeonhole as simple memoir. It is part travelogue, and part spirited defense of leisure time in the face of our ever-more busy and stressful modern lifestyle. It debuts in April.

This FREE event will be held at the Prior Lake Public Library/Club Prior, located at 16210 Eagle Creek Ave. in Prior Lake.  Seating is first-come first served, and doors will open 45 minutes before the program begins.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.  Arrive early to guarantee your spot.
