Presented in partnership with the Livonia Public Library.


Mike Bond will be in conversation with Brad Van Auken.

The 1960s transformed America.  After World War II, Korea, and the dreams of a healing nation, the ‘60s shook America to its foundation—the assassination of an idealistic young president, a tragic and unpopular war, the battle for civil rights, a cosmic clash of riots and burning cities, and an explosion of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. The ‘60s are brought to vivid life in Mike Bond’s new epic. America (Big City Press) is the first in his seven-volume historical novel series capturing the transformations and heartbreaks of the last 70 years.


“The master of the existential thriller.” – BBC


Mike Bond is the author of nine critically acclaimed best-selling novels, an award-winning poet, ecologist, and journalist. He has covered wars, revolutions, terrorism, military dictatorships and death squads in the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Africa, and environmental crises worldwide. His novels take the reader into intense experiences in the world’s most perilous places, making “readers sweat with [their] relentless pace.” (Kirkus), “working that fatalistic margin where life and death are one and the existential reality leaves one caring only to survive.” (Sunday Oregonian) https://mikebondbooks.com
