About the event

We are happy to welcome Cookeville-area author, the very clever Michael Evanichko, to the bookshop. Michael will be here for a meet-and-greet, signing copies of his trilogy, which you can read more about below. Michael's books are a great fit for readers of Stephen King and the schlocky horror and suspense books of the eighties.


In Life In a Savage Landfill, A group of strangers awaken in an old, abandoned landfill hidden deep in the woods without recollection of how they arrived in the filthy soup of trash. They must uncover their connections to one another and find a way out of the purposely deepened hole in the ground before the environment and the mastermind of their abductions destroys them all.

In Life in a Supermarket Basket, Vincent survived the ten-items-or-less lane at his favorite grocer with more than ten items only to get flattened by a car in the parking lot. As his body laid on the asphalt, his soul rose above, accompanied by all of his supermarket items, each item triggering an embarrassing memory from his downtrodden life.

In Life in a Neon Knapsack, it's 1986, and with only days until summer break, high school freshman Mamie Blackhead finds herself under the path of a small exploding plane while walking to school. Fighting to avoid the raining debris she discovers a neon knapsack with a journal detailing the life of a boy who may have perished in the sky above. As she digs deeper into the journal she uncovers a mystery that will haunt her the rest of her life.


"My desire to write blossomed in the sanctuary of the Catholic church when I was a child. The beautiful stained-glass windows that surrounded the chapel inspired me to create stories and characters that matched the brilliance of the colored glass. At age twelve, I cut paper to match the size of a paperback book and wrote my first novel, Ghost Town, using a manual typewriter. I have since progressed to having my work published and printed on paper. (I don’t have to cut with scissors anymore!) My three novels, Life in a Supermarket Basket, Life in a Savage Landfill, and Life in a Neon Knapsack formThe Trilogy of Life. Each novel is connected by a character and is unique in its tone and story." Michael is a resident of Middle Tennessee.
