(event is over)

Join Matt Geiger, Managing Editor of the Middleton Times- Tribune, as he discusses and reads from his latest collection of humorous essays, Astonishing Tales Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event and the evening will conclude with a book signing. From the publisher: "In his new collection of stories, acclaimed author and humorist Matt Geiger seeks to “de-familiarize” us from the world, from the smallest detail to the most cosmic mythology, in order to see it all as if for the first time. Turning his “philosopher’s vision” to his own abundant Neanderthal DNA, parenting, competitive ax throwing, old age, and much more, he sets out in search of comic profundity. With a nod to the limits of human knowledge and understanding, particularly his own, he draws from the wisdom of an 83-year-old pin-up legend, Anton Chekhov, Santa Claus, modern boxers, Medieval monks, and of course small children. Blending whimsy and gravitas, he unveils beauty, joy, and happiness in a seemingly broken world." Matt Geiger’s debut book, The Geiger Counter: Raised by Wolves & Other Stories was published in 2016. It won First Prize in the Midwest Book Awards and was named as a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the American Book Fest. He is also the winner of numerous journalism awards for his writing in the Middleton Times-Tribune. He lives in Mount Horeb with his wife, daughter, ten animals, and several metaphysical questions.
