Alex George will present his new novel Setting Free the Kites

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Alex George will Present his New Hardcover Novel Setting Free the Kites.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Alex George, the Author of A Good American, is an Englishman who lives, works, and writes in the middle of America.  He studied Law at Oxford University and worked for 8 Years as a Corporate Lawyer in London and Paris before moving to the United States.  He lives in Missouri with his family.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  From the Author of the lyrical and compelling (USA Today) Novel A Good American comes a powerful story of two friends and the unintended consequences of friendship, loss, and hope.  For Robert Carter, life in his coastal Maine hometown is comfortably predictable.  But in 1976, on his first day of eighth grade, he meets Nathan Tilly, who changes everything.  Nathan is confident, fearless, impetuous and fascinated by kites and flying.  Robert and Nathan's budding friendship is forged in the crucible of two family tragedies, and as the boys struggle to come to terms with loss, they take summer jobs at the local rundown amusement park.  It's there that Nathan's boundless capacity for optimism threatens to overwhelm them both, and where they learn some harsh truths about family, desire, and revenge.  Unforgettable and heart-breaking, Setting Free the Kites is a poignant and moving exploration of the pain, joy, and glories of young friendship.
