Join us for a reading from Daniel Ford's new short story collection, Black Coffee, and a Q&A with local author Hank Phillippi Ryan (Trust Me). This event will also be recorded as a live episode for the Writer's Bone podcast.
About the book
Black Coffee, a new short story collection from the author of Sid Sanford Lives!, brews together heartsick, overcaffeinated characters and dialogue that sizzles off a greasy diner grill. Enter a mournful veteran’s mind as he loses his grip on reality. Join an all-female extermination squad hunting down despicable men. Wait at the bar with two soul mates as they battle their stormy past and try to bring a cold love back to a boil.
These nine moving, funny, and, at times, terrifying stories explore how people meander in and out of each other’s lives, why family bonds are the hardest to navigate and break, and how hope lights a path even in the darkest of coffee cups.
