Beer and Literature Combine in the Pages of A Six Pack of Stories at the Old Town Book Fair

[PRESS RELEASE] June 27, 2013 - Among the many talented local authors to be featured at the Old Town Book Fair on Saturday, June 29th is newcomer is Charles Drew Stanley, editor and contributing author of A Six Pack of Stories. A Six Pack of Stories is a collection of short beer-centric fiction from writers across the US and Europe that together tell the tale of the world’s (or at least Colorado’s) favorite beverage. Stanley independently published it in late 2012 as a means of combining his two great passions, beer and creative writing.

“I’ve been writing as a hobby since I was very young and working in the craft beer industry since 2009,” says Stanley. “It occurred to me that the worlds of fiction and beer have rarely collided. Most published works about beer are historical, technical, or how-to guides. I thought the beer-loving community was missing a whole dimension in which to interact with beer.”

In early 2012, Stanley put out the call for short fiction of all genres, the only qualification being that it had to be beer-centric. The result is a mixed-genre collection of 24 (incidentally, the number of beer bottles in a case) stylistically diverse stories.

Stanley will speak with beer and literature lovers at this Saturday’s Old Town Book Fair from 2-4pm in the FCB Local Author Tent. Copies of A Six Pack of Stories will be available for $10.

“Wolverine Farm is providing a great opportunity to local authors by giving us the opportunity to interact with fans of literature at The Old Town Book Fair,” says Stanley. “This will be first time I’ve done anything like it in my role as an author, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Those who cannot attend the Old Town Book Fair can purchase A Six Pack of Stories in paperback at Wolverine Farm Bookstore and in paperback and Kindle format from
