David Joy Presents His Debut Novel
City Lights Bookstore, Friday, March 6 at 6:30pm
Webster author, David Joy will present his new novel on Friday, March 6th at 6:30 p.m. at City Lights Bookstore. Where All Light Tends to Go, a staff pick of both Chris and Eon, is set in Jackson County and tells the story of Jacob McNeely, a young man who is in a fight against his fate. “Expertly balancing beauty and brutality, David has written a novel that stays with the reader long after the final page has been read. Where All Light Tends to Go, though very much an Appalachian tale, is the story common to many young men who are trying to escape their desperate circumstances,” says City Lights staffer, Eon Alden. Ron Rash had this to say about the book, “A savage and moving account of a young man’s attempt to transcend his family’s legacy of violence. Where All Light Tends to Go is an outstanding debut and a fine addition to the country-noir vein of southern literature.” To help celebrate Innovation Brewing has brewed a special Where All Light Tends to Go Stout. We will have free samples available during the reading at the bookstore and following there will be an afterparty at Innovation to continue the celebration. Innovation will offer a discount on the stout if shown proof of purchase of David’s book at City Lights Bookstore. David Joy's stories and creative nonfiction have appeared in Drafthorse Literary Journal, Smoky Mountain Living, Wilderness House Literary Review, Pisgah Review, and Flycatcher, and he is the author of the memoir Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman's Journey.
