Book Signing
Date: December 22, 2013, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Venue: The Bookshelf - 206 N Main, McPherson, KS
Sponsor: The Bookshelf

The Event:      McPherson Native Christy Potter to Sign Copies of Her New Book at The Bookshelf on Dec. 22 Former McPherson resident Christy Potter will be signing copies of her new book, "Oh Brother," at The Bookshelf/The Hidden Closet on Sunday, Dec. 22 from 3 to 5 p.m. The public is invited. "Oh Brother" is Potter’s debut novel and follow up to the award-winning "The World Was My Oyster But I Didn’t Know How to Cook." A longtime reporter and columnist for the McPherson Sentinel, Potter is now a full-time author. Her first book, "The World Was My Oyster But I Didn’t Know How to Cook," is a compilation of literary essays. The book received the Princeton Literary Review’s Gold Standard for Literary Excellence, and was hailed by acclaimed author P.F. Kluge (Dog Day Afternoon, Eddie and the Cruisers) as "a lively mix of words and life." “"Oh Brother," released this fall, is loosely based on a true story. It chronicles the life of Ariel Carson, a 40-something sculptor from San Francisco who finds love with her ex-husband’s brother, only to have her ex-husband move in with them when he loses his job. The book is humorous, but takes on some serious topics, including emotional abuse, alcoholism, and absentee parents. Copies of both books will be available at The Bookshelf during and after the signing. "I’m really looking forward to having this book signing in my hometown," Potter said. "I was born and raised in McPherson, and so many people in town were an important part of shaping me as a writer. To me, this will be both a homecoming and a celebration. I’m excited to see everyone." Potter lives in Morristown, New Jersey with her husband, glass artist Guy Kass. For more on her writing, visit her website, www.ChristytheWriter.com .
