OUR NOVEMBER 2020 BOOK CLUB PICK: Golden Gate Jumper Survivors Society by Ross Wilcox 

SPECIAL IN NOVEMBER: Author Ross Wilcox will be joining our book club meeting! 

About the author: Ross Wilcox is from Elk Point, South Dakota. He has attended Morningside College, the University of South Dakota, and is now finishing the last year of his PhD at the University of North Texas, where he teaches writing and composition. His stories have appeared in numerous literary journals. GOLDEN GATE JUMPER SURVIVORS SOCIETY (7.13 Books, 2020) is his debut book-length work. He is currently at work on a novel. In addition to writing and fiction, Ross is a huge lover of basketball and a full-on disciple of LeBron James. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas with his wife and two cats.

About Golden Gate Jumper Survivors Society: A battle of wills emerges when one of the suicide survivors in the Golden Gate Jumper Survivors Society turns the meetings into a yoga class. A small town is gripped by a lawn ornamentation craze. A woman dresses up as Paul Bunyan to rob banks to pay her ailing mother's exorbitant nursing home bills. A married couple decides to 3-D print a son...and his entire childhood. GOLDEN GATE JUMPER SURVIVORS SOCIETY is a funny and poignant story collection about everyday people confronting everyday challenges with escalating absurdity. Reminiscent of the work of Aimee Bender, Ross Wilcox's stories will make you view the mundane in an entirely new way.
