Staff pick: Stephen Markley signing

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Ohio native and Miami University grad Stephen Markley got his book published in March. This is a big deal because the title of the book is "Publish this Book," and its 550 pages recount Markley's attempt to publish said book without going broke or crazy in Chicago. The almost stream-of-consciousness storytelling derives humor from the depths of Markley's desperation but, obviously, has a happy ending. It's an enjoyable read, and especially so for someone working in the writing field.
