Meg Heriford of Lawrence's legendary Ladybird Diner has compiled her essays into a book, as we've all been begging her to do for ages, and now that book is here: Ladybird, Collected.
This item will be released in early October, 2020.
100% of the proceeds from Raven sales of Ladybird, Collected will go to funding Ladybird Diner's community meal program. Each book purchase funds four meals.
