Join author Lyz Lenz and former Mayor Betsy Hodges for an evening of conversation on Lenz's new book, God Land. Cocktails, light bites and mingling will lead off the event, followed by a discussion of the book between Lenz and Hodges. The conversation will culminate with a Q&A and book signing. God Land will be available for purchase at the event.
Lyz Lenz's book God Land explores faith, loss, and hope in the middle of America. In 2016, Lenz saw her marriage end, her church fail and her country fall apart. Her book investigates these changes, on a personal and national scale and asks if our personal and political divides can ever be bridged and if America can ever come together.
