Join The Community Library for the launch of Idaho author Judith Freeman’s newest novel, MacArthur Park. Freeman will be in conversation with Jenny Emery Davidson, the Library’s executive director, and a book signing will follow. About MacArthur Park: Jolene and Verna share complicated bonds of friendship that have crystallized over time—their lives are inextricably linked. But when Verna marries Vincent, Jolene’s ex-husband, their paths may have finally, permanently, diverged. A successful artist, Jolene travels the world, attracting attention wherever she goes. Verna, a writer, works from her home near MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, where she and Vincent plan to spend the rest of their lives. Then Jolene asks one more favor of Verna—to take a road trip with her to their small hometown in Utah. It’s a journey that will force them to confront both the truths and falsehoods of their memories of each other and of the very beginnings of their friendship. Judith Freeman is the author of four novels—Red Water, The Chinchilla Farm, Set for Life, and A Desert of Pure Feeling—and of Family Attractions, a collection of stories, and The Long Embrace, a biography of Raymond Chandler. She lives in California and Idaho.
