The Tuesday Agency 404 East College Street, Suite 408

Join us at 6:30 in the Tuesday Agency office in the Chauncey Building to hear Luis Albert Urrea talk about his new novel based on his mother's service in WWII, Good Night, Irene.  Good Night, Irene isn’t just a marvelous novel, though it is indeed marvelous. It’s a marvelous novel that returns the brave Donut Dollies and the WWII Clubmobile Corps to their rightful place in history. With grace and compassion, Luis Alberto Urrea makes their story soar again.”  —Ann Hood
