Is the guy who wrote the book "What's the Matter with Kansas?" coming back to Lawrence anytime soon? I didn't get to hear him the first time he was here.
Yes, Thomas Frank will be in town Oct. 19 for a 7 p.m. reading and book-signing event at the Kansas Union ballroom.
"What's the Matter with Kansas?" has been on The New York Times best-seller list since late July. It's now No. 23.
Frank, a former Kansas University student, was last in Lawrence on June 14, drawing a capacity crowd at the Lawrence Arts Center. His appearance at the Kansas Union is sponsored by the Oread Bookstore.
