"Chewed Confessions" Book Event with Author Cheryl Kirwan, June 7th, at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes author Cheryl Kirwan as she discusses her new story collection "Chewed Confessions".

***Saturday, June 7th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

Chewed Confessions, is a series of thought-provoking linked short stories, using this inventive supposition to share a variety of human experiences, as related by the animated stick of gum that traveled with each person on a given day. From this intimate vantage, these humorous, heartfelt stories together explore a broad spectrum of everyday life, from affairs of the heart to matters of conscience. With rich insight and reflection, this original work of literature reveals the daily struggles we all face with doing the right thing. In this series of nine diverse short stories, each unique gum narrates the thoughts and actions of the characters once it enters his or her mouth. Each gum has its own flavor, and its own insightful understanding of the journey they are taking.

About the author:

Kirwan is a business woman inspired to write Chewed Confessions by a storytelling game she created which follows the travels of discarded gum. Years later, while on a business trip in Manhattan, she noticed an amazing amount of discarded gum on the sidewalks and thought it would be interesting if each one of those pieces of gum could share the adventure they spent with their human host,and — Chewed Confessions was born.


We hope to see you!
