Travis Nichols will be at Off Square Books to read and sign copies of Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder.
Joining him will be author Paul Killebrew reading and signing copies of Flowers.
Titled after the US Air Force song, this engaging debut explores the legacy of the Greatest Generation from the perspective of Generation Y, the fallout of war through the eyes of a pacifist, and the enduring human desire for love, adventure, truth, and understanding.
Paul Killebrew’s first book, Flowers, was published by Canarium Books in April 2010. His chapbook, Forget Rita, was published by the Poetry Society of America in 2003, and Ugly Duckling Presse published another, Inspector vs. Evader, in 2007. John Ashbery has written that Paul “plunges us into a world we inhabit but seldom notice, forcing its horror on us but also reminding us why we go on coping with it.” Born and raised in Tennessee, he now lives in Louisiana, where he works as a lawyer at Innocence Project New Orleans.
