December 2016 Pseudo-Tour

The poster from the very first Tuesday Funk reading, on April 1st, 2008.  That reading was organized by Hallie Palladino, Reinhardt Suarez, and myself.  Next week, the 100th Tuesday Funk reading will take place, hosted by Andrew Huff and Eden Robbins.  We will be joined by William Shunn, and so the readers this month will be all of the hosts of Tuesday Funk over the years.

Okay, so it isn’t a real book tour per sè, but after a lot of industrious typing this year I’ll be stepping out for a couple readings this month with some talented people. I’ll have books available for purchase, and I’ll do some online readings, too.

About

Connor Coyne is a novelist living and working in Flint, Michigan. His first novel, Hungry Rats has been hailed by Heartland prize-winner Jeffery Renard Allen as "an emotional and aesthetic tour de force." His second novel, Shattering Glass, has been praised by Gordon Young, author of Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City as "a hypnotic tale that is at once universal and otherworldly." Connor represented Flint's 7th Ward as its artist-in-residence for the National Endowment for the Arts' Our Town grant, through which artists engaged ward residents to produce creative work in service of the 2013 City of Flint Master Plan. Connor's work has been published in Santa Clara Review, Moria Poetry Zine, East Village Magazine, Flint Broadside, Moomers Journal of Moomers Studies, The Saturnine Detractor, and Qua. Connor lives in Flint's East Village, less than a mile from the house where he grew up.
