And Then Along Comes Franzen 

Who says books are dead? With all the hoopla over Jonathan Franzen's new novel, Freedom, one might think there were free iPads hidden inside the pages. Before it hit store shelves, Freedom went into its second printing, spurred a Twitter war and was even heralded as the novel of the century by The Guardian. So how can a novel -- and its author -- possibly live up to the hype? Find out for yourself when Left Bank Books presents the National Book Award winner and Webster Groves native at Christ Church Cathedral (1210 Locust Street; 314-367-6731 or www.left-bank.com) at 7 p.m. this evening. Franzen will sign and discuss his book at the free event -- and maybe he'll even address all the drama.
