An Evening with Mary Laura Philpott

Doors open at 6:00 pm and the event begins at 6:30 pm. A cash bar will be available, as well as light appetizers. A book signing will follow the talk.

Tickets are $35 and include a copy of the book Bomb Shelter. The event is co-hosted by The Snail on the Wall, Burritt on the Mountain, and The Scout Guide Huntsville.

Whether you're reading her writing, following her on Instagram or Twitter, or listening to her talk, you can't help but love Mary Laura Philpott. She's smart, funny, and always real while talking about raising kids or navigating life during the pandemic. In her new book, Bomb Shelter, Mary Laura explores what it means to move through life with a soul made of equal parts anxiety and optimism. (And she also ponders the mysteries of backyard turtles and the challenges of spatchcocking a turkey). Bring your friends, and enjoy this conversation with a bestselling author that we're pleased to welcome back to Huntsville.
