Author Event: Brett Busang

Join us for what is sure to be an unforgettable night with local author Brett Busang, as he reads from and talks about his latest book, "Laughter and Early Sorrow." 

From Brett:
Laughter and Early Sorrow is a collection of short stories that are unified by place (Memphis, TN, mostly) and period (the early to mid-1960's) during which I allegedly grew up, though there is a growing body of evidence that would say otherwise. Its eponymous story, The Death of Ivan Illyich, provides a name for the collection, which starts with a somewhat disappointing excursion and goes on - to a bad summer camp, an accordion concert gone awry, and a baseball game that blows a gasket.
