B MacGregor Holds Book Signing Event in Iowa Today
Join author B MacGregor for an event celebrating his debut novel, "A Fag for Her Fifties", He will host a book signing today, Dec. 20 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Beaverdale Books, 2629 Beaver Avenue in Des Moines. Stop in to meet the author, get a copy of his book and have it autographed. An Iowa native, MacGregor is returning for his first appearance in the state since the novel's release from AnyWho Editions in September.
At the heart of the novel is a strong, contemporary friendship and the transformative story of Beulah Mae Osguard who desperately wants out of her fifty year old closet - a boring and monotonous existence in the small town of Perfection, Iowa. Inspired by a San Francisco Gay Pride news video, she is convinced only a gay man can help her change. In a desperate Craigslist plea, she asks, "All you have to do is change me and give me something to look forward to. Give me hope. There it is. Not so hard." Beulah Mae's desperate plea is fulfilled when B, a bankrupt children's author, answers her ad, moves to Perfection, and transforms her into Charity - a strong, self-confident woman not afraid of her life.
The timing could not be better according to MacGregor's publisher, Lori Lott, at AnyWho Editions. "Society is celebrating the emotional courage associated with coming out. His unique style weaves a fabulous spin on a classic fairy tale into each chapter, creating an entertaining adventure of self-discovery."
"Living out of your closet empowers change. It takes strength to come out and resolve to redefine a hateful word," MacGregor said.
The author and publisher will both be present to greet people as well as answer any questions about their first novel, new company and upcoming releases. Beaverdale Books is the first Iowa book store to carry the novel which is available in print and electronic editions.
"A Fag for Her Fifties" is available in both print and electronic editions. E-books can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks Store and other venues. To purchase a print edition directly or to find a bookstore, visit AnyWho Edition's website.
