Southern Gothic Novelist John W. Bateman at Bookish

February 22 @ 12:00 am

Glitter & Drag Queens & Ghosts… Oh MY!

Who Killed Buster Sparkle? Well, we’ll leave that for you to discover. But what we CAN tell you is that Buster Sparkle (a cis, straight black male ghost) meets Peaches (a genderfluid, living, white drag queen) and … well… you’re just gonna have to read it for yourself.

But even BETTER, John W. Bateman is coming to Bookish on Saturday February 22 to talk about representation, writing Southern Gothic fiction, and returning to and living in the Deep South. He was recently nominated for the 2020 Mississippi Institute fo Arts and Letters Award–and we’re thrilled to have him at Bookish.

Come out on Saturday February 22nd (more specifics–like time–coming later on FB & IG), have dinner in EAV, then head to Mary’s for an IRL real drag show. It’ll be the BEST NIGHT EVER!
