Join us on Saturday, November 5th from 10am-Noon for a book signing with Susan Becker of Bellevue Iowa.

What began as an art project -- a series of colorful drawings that sparked a personal journey -- has now come full circle with the publication of Susan Becker’s illustrated memoir. Lunch Lady Land is a tribute to the hardworking, wise, and colorful women of St. Joe’s Hot Lunch.  With illustrations by the author, photographs by Sandra Dyas, and a story of bittersweet memories, new discoveries, humor, friendship, and food -- lots of food, a heartwarming slice of small town Americana unfolds throughout the pages of Sue Becker’s Lunch Lady Land.
