Saturday 27 January 2018, 1pm: Local author Jeff McKown will be in-store reading from copies of his new novel Solid Ground.
The book is published by NineStar Press, a small LGBT publishing house based in New Mexico. Solid Ground is a beautifully written coming-of-middle-age novel about a damaged, but kind-hearted, gay man who must battle his past to save himself and his relationships.
“Great book that deals with many difficult but relatable topics. There are truly some touching moments as Conor comes to terms with his past and tries to change the broken man he’s been for so many years. The voice is sharp and engaging throughout the entire novel, and interesting characters like June and Harlan provide a necessary dash of humor even in the darkest moments.”
This event is free and open to everyone.
