Emporia authors release Green Bike, a group novel
Emporia authors Kevin Rabas, Mike Graves and Tracy Million Simmons will host a launch party for their new novel from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at Town Crier Bookstore, 716 Commercial St.
Green Bike follows the lives of three couples, using the “McGuffin,” or shared symbol, of a classic Schwinn bike to link parallel tales. Each author wrote the three tales of the novel independently and collaboratively by reading each other’s work as the story progressed.
According to Simmons, entries were posted as they were completed, in the same order as they appear in this book. The project started in September, with the final chapters being completed around March of the following year.
