"Impossibly Glamorous" Book Event with Author Charles Ayres, Saturday June 15th, 2-4pm!

Florey's Books welcomes author Charles Ayres as he discusses his new book "Impossibly Glamorous: How a Misfit from Kansas Became an Asian Sensation"

***Saturday, June 15th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

Charles Ayres heard plenty of 'Wizard of Oz' jokes growing up in Kansas. After finding himself on some seedy dance floors in Kansas City, his quest for love and glamour - and his penchant for all things Japanese - carried Charles from Dorothy's homeland to New York to Tokyo.
Impossibly Glamorous follows his exploits with Goth raver lesbians, hot men, and not-so-hot men, culminating in a long-term love affair with Japan. His journey from ugly baby to Asian media personality touches on tough issues such as coming out gay in Kansas, domestic violence, substance abuse, and how to to bounce back from any kind of adversity with only a faux fur coat and a cavalier skip.

About the Author:

Charles Ayres is a translator, Japanese media personality, and writer published in Harper's Bazaar Japan, and Metropolis Tokyo. 'Impossibly Glamorous' is his first book.
