Gay author Scott Wilbanks to speak Friday at Books & Books in Coral Gables

Scott Wilbanks, the gay author of The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster, will speak and sign copies 8 p.m. Friday at Books & Books in Coral Gables.

Here’s the Facebook invitation from Shed Boren:

Please join us August 21st at Books & Books in Coral Gables (8:00 pm) for the launch of Scott Wilbanks' debut novel THE LEMONCHOLY LIFE OF ANNIE ASTER. Scott happens to be my friend of over forty years.

Interesting fact: My first date EVER was with his younger sister. Even more interesting fact: She and I both came out the following year. Most shocking fact: Despite being the biggest queen of all, Scott waited five more years to do the same.

Save the date and join us for Miami leg of his US tour where you can buy a copy of Scott's book, get it signed, and listen to him dazzle you with staggeringly boring stories about how much he typed, and how badly his fingers hurt.

Or, maybe he'll channel Carrie Bradshaw and read from his book? We will see.

Bring your friends and make this a part of an evening in the Gables. There are plenty of restaurants in the area to enjoy Miami Spice!

Besides, it will be fun to see you.
