Mary Louise Parker

The Englert Theatre — Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.

Prairie Lights Bookstore will bring actress Mary Louise Parker (Weeds, Fried Green Tomatoes) to the Englert Theatre to read from her first book, Dear Mr. You on Nov. 15. Dear Mr. You is a semi-fictional collection of letters to men — real and imagined — who’ve been integral to Parker’s life. Included are letters to a beloved childhood priest, former lovers and her grandfather.

Tickets can be purchased at Prairie Lights Bookstore or through the Englert Theatre. Copies of Dear Mr. You will be available Nov. 10 at Prairie Lights Bookstore, and Parker will be joined on stage by Iowa-City-based actor Tim Budd.
