Meg Heriford, Ladybird, Collected
Meg Heriford was running the quirky, thriving Ladybird Diner in Lawrence, Kansas, when the pandemic hit in March. She quickly pivoted to making and giving out lunch to anyone in her community who needed it. She wrote a book, Ladybird Collected, to help fund the initiative. We talk to her about the book, the diner, and supporting her community. Buy the book from the diner directly or from Raven Bookstore. You can contribute to the Ladybird Diner community lunch program through Venmo or Paypal. More info here.
