Author Appearance Thursday, February 2 at the Pioneer Bookshop


Please Don't Come Back from the Moon

Author Dean Bakopoulos, Assistant Professor of English at Grinnell College will appear at the Pioneer Bookshop on Thursday, February 2, at 7pm to read from his book, Please Don't Come Back from the Moon. The story unfolds as a number of fathers in a down trodden Michigan town disappear. One shop keeper leaves a note on his door, "I'm going to the moon. I took the cash." The story centers around a group of adolescent boys left behind and their mothers who struggle to make ends meet.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend this special event of the Pioneer Bookshop Book Club.
