Craig LaBan’s wife talks about her latest book

Elizabeth LaBan often sets her novels in Philadelphia. That made for an interesting guessing game for readers of The Restaurant Critic's Wife as to which dining experiences were based on real encounters with her husband, Inquirer critic Craig LaBan. The city again plays a role in Not Perfect, her newest book. She'll discuss it for an audience at the library in Rittenhouse Square.
