ATL Bookmarks: 3 Events to hit this week

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2012 at 2:22 PM

Charis Books has a busy week ahead- not only will they be hosting the bi-weekly Writing With Intent writer's workshop, but on Saturday they'll be hosting the Tall Tales and Real Man Adventures event down the street at the Star Bar. After transitioning from female to male, author T Cooper authored Real Man Adventures- a book that explores the meaning of manhood through a combination of essays, interviews, and artwork. To celebrate the book's release Cooper will take the stage with Amy Ray and Scott Turner Schofield for the third time in a decade. It may be years before the three join forces again- so think twice before missing out.
