November City & State Book Club with Jamey Hatley, City & State, Tuesday, 12. November 2019

We're bringing you an old twist on the old book club. We've teamed up with some crazy talented local authors to create this one -of-a-kind opportunity.

Each author has selected one of their favorite novels, which you’ll be able to purchase in store (or elsewhere), and will join us for a night of great conversation, drinks and treats to share their thoughts and hear yours. We think it’s a pretty cool way to connect with your community and enjoy the company of awesome people.

The November Book Club author is Jamey Hatley, and the book club reading is Meet Behind Mars (Made in Michigan Writers Series).  

Jamey Hatley is a native of Memphis, Tennessee. Her writing has appeared in the Oxford American, Torch, The Account, Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History, Memphis Noir, and elsewhere. She has attended the Callaloo Creative Writing Workshop, the Voices of Our Nation Writing Workshop, and received scholarships from the Oxford American Summit for Ambitious Writers and the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. She received an MFA in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University. She is a Prose Fellow for the National Endowment for the Arts and a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award Winner.

Of Meet Behind Mars, Hatley says "This is a book that I wish I had found in my public library as a girl. This eccentric collection of short stories brims with tales of characters full of ambition. At turns absurd, poignant, hilarious, magical, and heartbreaking. This collection explores with depth the complex emotional lives of men and women seeking to make meaning of their world."

Meet Behind Mars is available for purchase at City & State. Purchase of the short story collection through City & State includes a free ticket to the book club meeting. If you prefer to purchase the book elsewhere or already have a copy, tickets can be purchased here. 

Book club meetings include beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and light snacks for attendees. 

Tickets $10 in advance | $12 at the door
