Author Rick Mcgranahan comes to the DC Center on Saturday, August 4th to read from his memoir, Visiting the Ghost of Puppyboy. The reading begins at 11 AM and is part of the 2012 OutWrite LGBT Book Fair. A brief description of the book follows.
Over a period of seven years in the nightclub industry, go on a journey through memorable stories interwoven with documented journal entries, telling a true tale of how a Micro-celebrity alter ego stage name is created and then eventually put to death by self destruction, eventually becoming a mere taunting ghost of the past.
Encounter experiences of head exploding arrogance, defining friendships both shallow and deep, drug and alcohol addiction, traveling on naked money, struggling to find love under a DJ spotlight, and figuring out how to define the difference of being in love or in love with the idea of being in love.
The nightclub industry wrapped its arms around me, swept me away in a whirlwind, but little did I know it would chew me up and spit me out. Come now, and visit my ghost with me.
The OutWrite Book Fair will include several book and poetry readings, and literature discussions. Several book publishers will display and sell recently published LGBT books, and the DC Center will have over 1,000 used LGBT themed books for sale at the event. Find out more at www.outwritedc.org.
