A Circus of Short Stories by Mark Mayer
Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome author Mark Mayer to the store! We hope that you will join us to celebrate the release of Mark’s debut collection of stories, Aerialists. The event will be taking place in our store on Sunday, February 24th at 2:00pm. It is free and open to the public. Mark will be joined by local poets Tim Earley and Andrew Schelling.
Mayer’s Aerialists is a sublime circus of fiercely inventive stories. In these nine stories, readers will see P.T. Barnum’s caravan remade. A cast of classic carnival characters become ordinary misfits seeking grandeur in a lonely world. The book finds the myths of American exaggerations surrounding the circus in the everyday.
We hope you’ll join us for this event!
