Hey, did you know that it’s been 25 years since Fannie Flagg’s novel Fried Green Tomatoes hit the silver screen? Yeah, me either, but I love everything about this book and film, so Friday got me all like …


Even better, you can meet the author of both the novel and the screenplay right here in her hometown of Birmingham!  Join Fannie Flagg on December 9th at the Lyric Fine Arts Theatre for an evening of conversation about her brand-new novel “The Whole Town is Talking.

From what I understand, you can get your picture made with her after the book signing, so don’t forget to iron your dresses, darlings! And, be sure to reserve your seats now!

This free event is your chance to meet a real-live Alabama writer who knows her way around a screenplay, among other endeavors. The Washington Post said that “even the dead characters are delightful in Fannie Flagg’s latest novel.” Now, that’s a review!

While you’re at it, don’t forget about those fried green tomatoes from Irondale Cafe. I’m always free for a lunch date, just FYI.
