Author Judith Freeman will be the keynote speaker at the 12th annual Stanley Library Author luncheon.

The luncheon will be held at noon Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Stanley Library.

Freeman, who lives in Fairfield and Los Angeles, is the author of “MacArthur Park,” an emotionally taut, beautifully written story about the complexities of a friendship between two women—and how it shapes and reshapes both of their lives.

Her memoir, “The Latter Days,” recounts the path Freeman took out of her Mormon upbringing to become an author, even as she divorced the man she had married at 17 and dealt with her 4-year-old son’s heart surgeries.

Freeman’s first book, a collection of short stories, Family Attractions (1988), was praised in the New York Times for its originality.

Her novels include The Chinchilla Farm (1989), Set For Life (1991), A Desert of Pure Feeling (1996), and Red Water, named one of the 100 best books of 2002 by the Los Angeles Times. She is also the author of the non-fiction work The Long Embrace: Raymond Chandler and the Woman He Loved, hailed by Jonathan Lethem as an “elegant, stirring book.”

Tickets for the buffet lunch hosted by the Stanley Supper Club are $35 and must be purchased in advance at stanley.id.library@gmail.com or by calling Library Director Jane Somerville at 208-774-2470.
