George Hodgman - Bettyville: A Memoir

Monday, March 16, 2015 - 7:00pm

When George Hodgman left Manhattan for his hometown of Paris, Missouri to care for his aging mother Betty, he expected to be away for only a few weeks. But life conspired to keep him there, armed with not much more than a (mostly) willing heart, a broken past to sort out, and two irascible personalities: his own, and Betty’s. In his hilarious, heartbreaking memoir, Bettyville, Hodgman shares their unforgettable mother-son journey, capturing truths about family, identity, and our current American landscape.

George Hodgman is a veteran magazine and book editor who has worked at Simon & Schuster, Vanity Fair, and Talk magazine. His writing has appeared in Entertainment Weekly, Interview, W, and Harper’s Bazaar.
