Mark Mayer will speak about and sign his new book, Aerialists: Stories, on Thursday, February 21st at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Welcome to the sublime circus of Aerialists, an inventive collection of stories in which classic carnival characters become ordinary misfits seeking grandeur in a lonely world. The circus has always been a collection of American exaggerations, and Aerialists finds these myths living in the everyday. Mark Mayer's deftly drawn characters illuminate these small-scale spectaculars, and their attempted acts of daring and feats of strength are rendered with humor, generosity, and uncommon grace.
