Lunch with Will Weaver

Award-winning author, Will Weaver presents: The Writer's Life: Just When You Think You've Done It All. Will Weaver recently set aside his own writing in order to bring to life an unpublished memoir by the late and beloved Minnesota author Jon Hassler (1933-2008). Discovered in Jon's effects, Days Like Smoke: A Memoir of Childhood needed a final edit and a publisher. Will tells the touching story of helping to resurrect this lovely and late addition to Hassler's body of work. 

Ticket includes a choice of three delicious Loose Moose Saloon's lunch menu options available when you order a ticket.
