National Author Visit: Lori Borgman
Be at the Library on June 17th for an evening of laughter with syndicated newspaper columnist and Indianapolis resident Lori Borgman. Lori is the author of four books, including, “I Was a Better Mother Before I Had Kids,” and she frequently speaks at fundraisers and corporate and civic events throughout the United States. Ten years ago, Lori wrote a tongue-in-cheek obituary for the death of Common Sense and the essay was published in eight countries, read on the BBC, and may even have been emailed to you attributed to "Anonymous." Lori recently revisited the essay and wrote profiles for the survivors of Common Sense: his wife, Discretion; their children, Responsibility and Reason; and the two step-brothers of Common Sense, Half-Wit and Dim-Wit. Those profiles and the original essay are now available in her book, “The Death of Common Sense & Profiles of Those Who Knew Him.” Reserve your seat today for Lori's talk on June 17th, and be sure to check out the Library's collection of humor essayists while you're here.
