Curbside Splendor: A Little Boy Needs a Ride & Fake Fruit Factory

7:00 pm


About Little Boy Needs Ride:
Chicago playwright Chris Bower’s debut collection of short stories marks the arrival of a truly original voice. In these unsettling stories, Bower bleakly examines the often disastrous results of our desire to love and belong. In a series of heartbreaking letters, a young boy appeals for attention from manipulative parents. A man knits a wedding dress for the woman he loves, but who hardly knows him. A teenage boy plagiarizes poems to solidify his identity among his peers. Chicago artist Susie Kirkwood’s illustrations grace each and every page, beautifully illuminating the heart of each story.

About Fake Fruit Factory:

Fake Fruit Factory is a stick-slapping, gut-punching comedic novel about the eccentric small town of Dyson, Ohio. When NASA determines an errant satellite will crash there, the town’s young mayor uses the ensuing media circus to attract tourism and save his bankrupt rust belt community. Unless, of course, the satellite completely wipes it from the map. Fake Fruit Factory hilariously captures the peculiarities of small town life through the story of a wacky community finding its place in contemporary America.
