Susan Orlean: The Orchid Thief
Clean Well-Lighted, 601 Van Ness Avenue
After he was caught in the act of stealing rare orchids from a wild swamp in Florida, John Laroche, a toothless, renegade plant dealer, sets off one of the oddest legal controversies in recent memory.

In addition to reading from her novel, Huffey will discuss her writing and publishing process. In her book, Huffey introduces us to the midwestern bible-quoting, tongues-speaking family of Roxanne Fish. "The Hallelujah Side" is an unforgettable story of the conflict between a woman's desire to be saved and her yearning to experience the beauty and variety of the world. The daughter of two Pentecostal preachers, Huffey is a magazine writer, a dancer, and a backup screamer to a retro-punk band.
