Avid Bookshop presents local author Mike McClelland in celebration of his debut novel, Gay Zoo Day: Tales of Seeking and Discovery. This event will be held on Friday, September 1, from 6:30-7:30p.m. at our Prince Ave. location. The reading is free and open to the public.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mike McClelland originally hails from Pennsylvania, and spent about a decade working in advertising before changing careers. He now lives in Athens, where he’s pursuing a Ph.D. in creative writing from the University of Georgia.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
The central characters in Gay Zoo Day: Tales of Seeking and Discovery are all searching for something more than what life has handed them. They trace their paths through landscapes of love, death, violence, ambition, and sex. Some seek deliberately, some stumble blindly, but all find more than what they were looking for. Each story takes a queer approach to a familiar genre: an adventure in space, a cowboy romance in Panama, a ghost story in upstate New York, a revenge drama in colonial Kenya. Gay Zoo Day uses the map of the world to explore the map of the heart.
