Michigan’s very own Rhoda Janzen will be at Borders in Birmingham for a reading and signing of Mennonite in a Little Black Dress on Wednesday, June 9, 2010 at 7:00 PM. The Hope College professor will present her humorous hit memoir which was recently released in paperback and has become a book club darling.
Ms. Janzen was born in North Dakota where her father was the pastor of a small Mennonite church but has made Michigan her home for years. You can catch a few “quick facts” about Ms. Janzen by clicking here. Ms. Janzen currently teaches English and creative writing and has a previously published collection of poems titled Babel’s Stair.
If you haven’t yet read Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, you can catch my NLR review Mennonites and Potheads? which I posted back in November. Rhoda Janzen’s next book is in the works and you can read more about her anticipated Backslider in my post Michigan’s Mennonite is at it Again.
