Diane Johnson 

When: Thu., Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m. 2014
The title Flyover Lives may imply the kind of coastal snobbery we Californians love to direct at the Midwest, but don’t be fooled: This new memoir by acclaimed novelist Diane Johnson (who’ll read at Mrs. Dalloway’s, 2904 College Ave., Berkeley) is, if anything, a heartfelt appreciation of her home in Illinois — and, really, home in general. It’s a book about, fundamentally, the many ways — some imperceptible, some obvious — in which where we’re from shapes who we are, no matter where life leads us. You’ll never look down from your window seat the same way again.
— Ellen Cushing
