Guest Author Kevin R. Peterson

Peek inside the simple lives of men and women just trying to make the best of who they are and what they have. From the touching slice of life of a depressed homemaker in the title story of Peterson's short story collection, "Pork Chips and Applesauce," to the annoyed ghost writer trying to insert some life into Death's autobiography in "Death on a Stick," each story in Pork Chops and Applesauce and Other Tales from a Deranged Mind is a journey into a moment of life that, no matter how absurd the set-up, rings true. Each one of us, Peterson writes, is spectacularly flawed, beautiful inside, and desperate to simply survive. Join us in celebrating the launch of three of Kevin's books - the short story collection Pork Chops and Applesauce and Other Tales From a Deranged Mind, and his novels The Many Deaths of Mary and William and Salmolina. Kevin will give a reading amd answer questions about his work, and will sign copies of his three books. This event begins at 7:00 p.m.
