Wednesday, June 24, 6:00 p.m.

The Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library welcome young adult author Will Walton for Café au Libris!

Walton works at Avid Bookshop right here in Athens and just released his first novel, Anything Could Happen.

The novel follows the story of Tretch, who lives in a small southern town where everybody’s in everybody else’s business. Tretch has fallen in love for the first time, but with his straight best friend Matt. Anything Could Happen follows the challenges Tretch faces while trying to keep his sexuality a secret.

Anything Could Happen explores the depths of what love and friendship truly mean and how sometimes thing have to fall apart before they can be made whole again. While aimed towards young adults, the novel is one that all ages can learn from.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.

The event will take place in Appleton Auditorium, followed by a reception. For more information, call (706) 613-3650. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
