Bainbridge native son and bestselling author Jonathan Evison will be launching his newest book, Lawn Boy, on Monday, April 2 from 6:30-9 at BARN.

In this podcast Jonathan’s long-time friend and editor, Jim Thomsen, talks with him at length about their experiences growing up on Bainbridge, touching on racism, wealth disparity, favorite dive bars and more as they explore what it takes to create a best-selling novel.

Whether you’re an old-time Bainbridge Islander, a new resident, or just fascinated by the process of writing, you’re sure to enjoy this entertaining and irreverent look at the pros and cons of island life.
