Author of Stump The Librarian speaks Feb. 5 in Foley
Alan Samry, author of Stump the Librarian: A Writer’s Book of Legs, will be giving a presentation at the Foley Public Library on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 @ 2 pm in the upstairs meeting room.
Alan will discuss his book which is a diverse collection of creative writing that explores his life as a congenital below-knee amputee and a public librarian. Alan’s cross-genre writing in creative nonfiction, poetry, essays, satire, scholarship, and experimental writing weaves fascinating mythical, historical, and literary figures into his own absorbing story of being a “born amputee.” In the book, with chapters organized as though the reader were exploring a public library, Alan writes about his experiences in an open, insightful, and humorous way. In his search for other leg amputees, Alan finds a new way of seeing himself and the world around him.
