MN Reads: "Ruby & Roland" by Faith Sullivan

RubyAndRoland_300dpi_RGB.jpg

Authors aren't performers like actors or musicians, but they seem to get roped into public appearances to read their work pretty regularly.

When she was younger, Faith Sullivan says she was nervous before one of these events, that is, until the wise words of Ethel Merman were passed along to her by her theater-critic husband.  Dan Sullivan asked the legendary performer if she ever got nervous. "Why should I?" replied Merman. "I'm the one who knows the words!"

Faith Sullivan will be in Duluth tomorrow (September 20) for a joint reading-and-conversation evening with William Kent Krueger at Zenith Bookstore.

Ruby & Roland is published by Milkweed Editions.
