Acclaimed novelist, screenwriter, and musician James Greer comes to Lawrence to sign copies of his new story collection "Everything Flows." Everything Flows features color collages by Guided by Voices frontman Robert Pollard. "Halfway between the mind of God and a vivid dream, Everything Flows is proof that there remain new places to go, both on paper and in the known universe."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) See the book trailer! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP0-nQ7m3xs&feature=youtu.be About the book: The nineteen stories in Everything Flows are surreal and fractured, reassembling traditional narrative into something coherent, yet undulant; universal, yet personal; and strange, yet still familiar. Everything Flows also features the art of Guided by Voices frontman Robert Pollard. Besides being known as one of today's most prolific song-writers, Pollard's irrepressible creativity has been an inspiration to artists everywhere, and his stunning color collages make for a truly transfixing compliment to Greer's writing.
