Author Tony Macaulay to sign books at Better World Books tonight


GOSHEN — Author Tony Macaulay will be signing books at Better World Books from 6 to 8 tonight in downtown Goshen.

Macauley is from Northern Ireland and is author of the critically acclaimed "Paperboy."

His latest work, "Breadboy," takes place in Belfast 1988. The king is dead and a 14-year-old boy wearing Denim aftershave has just been appointed breadboy in the last Ormo Mini-Shop in the world, delivering bread to the residents of the Upper Shankill on Saturday mronings. He's all grown up now and nearly shaving.

The Bee Gees fill the airwaves, everyone is in love with Princess Leia and Breadboy's love of peace and pets is soon rivaled by his interest in parallel universes, punk and girls -- especially Judy Carlton, who sits opposite him in chemistry. Sooner or later, Breadboy is sure they'll become a proper couple like Paul and Linda, and Judy will be his girl. He has rivals at school and dangers on the streets, but Breadboy is hopeful -- and he delivers.

Better World Books is located at 215 S. Main St., Goshen.
