Local author, Jeff Jackson, joins us for a discussion on his new novel.

Sunday, March 9, 2014. 2pm
Cost: $0.

If you're interested in writing your own book you'll want to swing by for this. Jeff will discuss the creative path he took to put his ideas to manuscript as well as the commercial process of going from manuscript to publication. He will also answer questions and sign copies of his novel which we have for sale here at Pura Vida.

About the book: The protagonist of Jackson's macabre and experimental debut novel is Jeff, the son of an abusive mother who runs away from home at the age of 11 and leads an itinerant existence, haunted by his childhood memories. The episodic chapters track the stages of Jeff's life. Through an often sordid and savage phantasmagoria, Jackson, also a playwright blurs the boundaries between the real and the imaginary, creating an unsettling allegory of growth into adulthood.
