Larry Baker

Prairie Lights

Join us with Iowa City author Larry Baker, who will read from his latest novel, Harry and Sue: A Story of Love and Ghosts.  “Most ghost stories are scary campfire tales that make you huddle close and fear the night. In Larry Baker’s seventh novel, HARRY AND SUE, the ghosts exude tremendous personality and charisma and endless charm — but then of course they would. They are all dead celebrities returning to an old theater in downtown Oklahoma City where they proceed to bamboozle each other to the great delight of the narrator Harry, a man down on his luck and needing a friend in the worst way, even if she is a ghost. No scary campfire tale this, but an exuberant immersion into Americana from ages past, a bonfire of delight with Baker’s own unique twist at the end. Enjoy.”—Mike Lankford

Former Iowa City Councilman Larry Baker is also the author of numerous books, including The Flamingo Rising, A Good Man, Athens America, The Education of Nancy Adams, Love and Other Delusions, and Wyman and the Florida Knights.
