Michelle Huneven discusses her new novel with Marrie Stone on June 3 at Susi Q

Huneven will be in conversation with podcaster and arts columnist Marrie Stone.

“We typically try to bring a bit of fun buoyancy to our summer event, and Michelle proved the perfect fit,” Stone said. “She’s funny, she’s a little irreverent and her writings about food will make people salivate. Even readers who come from an utterly secular background (as I do) will relate to these characters and enjoy Michelle’s humor.”

Huneven’s first two books, Round Rock (Knopf 1997) and Jamesland (Knopf 2003), were both New York Times notable books and also finalists for the LA Times Book Award. Her third, Blame, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and also a finalist for the LA Times Book Award. Her fourth novel, Off Course, was a New York Times Editor’s Choice.

Huneven is currently teaching creative writing to undergraduates at UCLA, working on her next novel and writing the occasional article about food.

The program runs from 5:15-7:30 p.m. and includes light appetizers, beverages and book signings. Attendees also receive a copy of the book. Fee is $40. Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

Susi Q is located at 380 Third St., Laguna Beach.
