On Friday, February 21st at 7 PM (at our Frankfort Ave store), Carmichael's welcomes Louisville writer Seth Johnson for a reading from and signing of his debut story collection "The Things We Do For Women." Johnson's collection comprises twelve linked tales set in Kentucky against the backdrop of the disintegration of a young marriage amidst thwarted expectations and contrasted by illustrations of the unconditional love freely given by dogs. A man on the run hides out at a boarding house owned by a paraplegic woman whose uncle's dog gives birth with an ease that impresses the observers of this ordinary event. A young man confesses his extramarital affairs to his mother. A housewife attends the funeral of a young woman whom she never knew. In precise, evocative prose, "The Things We Do for Women" explores the perpetual desire for love and the obstacles to obtaining it. We hope you'll be able to join us as we welcome Seth to Carmichael's!
