In the same month as the expected release of the new James Bond film, Spectre, author Michelle Disler will be reading at GLCL on Thursday, November 19, at 6:30pm. Disler, the author of [BOND, JAMES]: alphabet, anatomy, (auto)biography, will be sharing excerpts from previous Bond stories in addition to reading passages from her own book. Her reading will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. This event is free and open to the public.

Michelle Disler has a PhD in Nonfiction from Ohio University. Her essays, photo essays, and prose poems have appeared in journals such as North Dakota Quarterly, The Massachusetts Review, Seneca Review, Hotel Amerika. She is currently at work on a book manuscript titled Return to the Island, a collection of prose poems reflecting on time spent on Beaver Island, the island’s curious history, and the house her father built on the island. Disler continues to research Bloodnotes, a collection of prose poems that attempt to evoke the visceral, the sensory reality of homicide while connecting with what Hannah Arendt calls the “banality of evil,” and are influenced by Disler’s father’s career as a homicide detective in the Michigan State Police. Disler’s first book, [BOND, JAMES]; alphabet, anatomy, (auto)biography, was published by Counterpath Press.
