Sunday afternoon with Susan Orlean at CPL
Born in Cleveland, Ms. Orlean has had a career as a writer that has taken her from the surf girls of Maui to the Florida swamps. Each topic she covers leaves the reader better informed and wanting more. The story of John Laroche and the culture that surrounds orchids, The Orchid Thief read like beautifully constructed fiction. The Orchid Thief was adapted into the film entitled Adaptation in 2002.
