Entertainment Briefs – July 4th – Brainerd Dispatch

Author Linda LeGarde Grover will speak at noon Monday, July 8, about her latest book, ‘In the Night of Memory’ at the Brainerd Public Library.

The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library. The friends are celebrating the 20th season of the Brown Bag Lunch Author Series this summer with a lineup of award-winning and acclaimed Minnesota writers.

‘In the Night of Memory,’ two lost sisters find family and themselves, among the voices of an Ojibwe reservation, a news release stated.

ROB HALFORD On Possible JUDAS PRIEST Biopic: ‘Who Would Play The Metal God? I Have No Idea’

In a recent interview with San Francisco’s 107.7 The Bone (KSAN-FM) radio station, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford was asked if he and his bandmates would be open to having their story told in a movie with actors, like QUEEN’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and M’TLEY CR’E’s recently released Netflix biopic “The Dirt”.
