Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome author Mark Mayer to the store to celebrate the release of Mark’s debut collection of stories, Aerialists. The event will be taking place in our store on Sunday, February 24th at 2:00pm. It is free and open to the public.
Mayer’s Aerialists is a sublime circus of fiercely inventive stories. In these nine stories, readers will see P.T. Barnum’s caravan remade. A cast of classic carnival characters become ordinary misfits seeking grandeur in a lonely world. The book finds the myths of American exaggerations surrounding the circus in the everyday.
