On Saturday, August 23rd a book release party will be held at Café Mundo, 209 NW Coast in Nye Beach, from 3 to 5 pm. This event is open to the public and will present Gus Willemin’s first novel – Sideman – a fictional account of the relationship of two highly unlikely friends. One an emotionally conflicted veteran and the other a locally raised Nye Beach store owner ten years his junior. Read along as these two experience several twists and turns right here on the streets of Newport.
As it unfolds, this compelling story will present situations and emotions that will cause the reader to ponder how they would react under similar circumstances. This story might help the reader better understand the mental and emotional experience of one returned from combat as it contrasts with the American dream.
The author will read a few pages to give indication of style without revealing too much content. Questions and comments are encouraged.
‘Sideman’ has been published by Newport’s own Dancing Moon Press, a full service book production company.
