Petrick talks baseball, Parkinsons in memoir
Bards & Brews features fantasy, satire, more from five authors
This month, Primrose and Tumbleweeds welcomes a new lineup of writers to its Last Friday Bards & Brews event, where five authors introduce their books while patrons sip wine or microbrews.
n Hillsboro native and former major-league-baseball player Ben Petrick (now a consultant with the Hillsboro Hops) has written Forty Thousand to One, a memoir of both his Colorado Rockies experience and his battle with Parkinsons disease.
n Jake Elliot will offer a world of mystery, religion, politics and deception when he reads from the second book in his Heretic Trilogy, Crossing Mothers Grave. The series follows a priestess, an elf and two mercenary brothers as they attempt to recover a stolen religious artifact.
n Raymond Macalinos childrens book, Percys Planetary Surprise, tells of a lonely pig on a far-away planet and the surprise that changes his life.
n Chad Coensons Me and Bobby McGee is a modern social satire which features an alcohol-infused, government-trained killer. The book has been optioned for a feature film by Man vs. Film Productions in Portland.
n Courtney Pierces Stitches draws from her 20 years as a sales and marketing executive on Broadway.Add a comment
