Left Bank Books presents bestselling author Edward Kelsey Moore, who will sign and discuss his new novel, “The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

The late-in-life and paradoxical marriage of a gentleman’s club owner and a devout church-goer brings together the people of Plainview, Indiana with the great Blues guitarist Eli Walker, who once vowed to never set foot in the town again. But El is not the only Plainview native with a hurdle to overcome. A philandering husband struggles to prove his faithfulness to his wife. A young transwoman lights out for Chicago to escape her father’s wrath and live an authentic life. And a group of lifelong friends, known locally as “The Supremes,” each find themselves struggling with personal demons, the ghosts of their pasts, and what it truly means to live.
