Reading, writing, rock: Feedback hosts Michael G. Hickey book event

November 14, 2012 at 11:50 pm | In West Seattle books, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Big booksigning tonight for West Seattle first-time novelist Michael G. Hickey – he had already sold a box of books by the time we stopped by the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) to check in. Full house, too, wishing him well as he promotes “Counterclockwise” – fans on hand included Mike’s standup-comic wife Mona Concepcion (below left) and his boss Gary Oertli (below right):

You probably recognize Oertli as president of South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor), where Hickey is on the faculty. Wondering what “Counterclockwise” is about? Hickey’s description: “It’s 1980, Tucson, Arizona, and a grocery store clerk becomes friends with a world-famous rock singer. Their friendship inspires each to face their respective pasts and the demons that seem to be sabotaging their respective futures.” It’s 34 years in the making – with its roots in a series of short stories of ihs from back in 1978!

  4. It was such an amazing night – thank you West Seattle Blog, the Feedback Lounge, all my compadres at South Seattle Community College, and to everyone who came out that night. It was an unforgetable night from the very first minute I walked into the bar and saw my brother Matt standing there, having just flown in from Anchorage, AK. Incredible night! Can’t thank you all enough, and I hope you like the book!
