Joe R. Lansdale will be presenting his new book, Born for Trouble
In Edgar Award winner Joe R. Lansdale’s newest Hap and Leonard story collection, the boys are back, with more righteous ass-kickings, highly improbable adventures, and disastrous fishing trips. These never before collected tales showcase the popular not-so dynamic duo who are little bit older, but not a whole lot wiser—Hap and Leonard were truly born for trouble.
“A folklorist’s eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur’s sense of pace.”
—New York Times Book Review
