Homegrown this week, more events at McQuixote + Misha Feigin on the radio hour

Misha Feigin is an experimental jazz guitarist with Russian folk influence, he is also a poet, storyteller, and a delightful spirit in our musical and literary community. He has recently released a new book of musings that only Misha’s vast collection of intellect and character could conjure.

Let us go then you and I on a road trip of the mind with Russian born poet Misha Feign. Standing on the outside of our culture looking in at what Henry Miller called “the air conditioned nightmare,” Feign has written a series of stories which help us view what might be familiar with fresh eyes.
Harold Maier, the founder of Twice Told Books

McQuixote Books & Coffee
1512 Portland Ave Suite #1, Louisville, Kentucky 40203

We are excited to announce Portland native and author, Brenda Duffey, will be in the shop this winter reading and signing her book, The Peacemaker. Brenda is a regular at our counter and a lifelong writer.

The Peacemaker is historical fiction at its finest. The story begins in 1720 and follows “over ten generations of descendants as they struggle to restore the vision of the Peacemaker and end the continuing cycles of war and famine. It is the story of an American family that loses its connection to the values that made them strong and the efforts to restore those values.”

Join us for a night of local literature with one of our newest friends, Brenda Duffey.

Saturday 8-10pm
