Creative 360 welcomes author Rick Bailey to discuss his newest book, The Enjoy Agenda: At Home and Abroad, on Tuesday, September 10 at 7:00 p.m. The event will be held in the Creative 360 Gallery located at 1517 Bayliss St. in Midland. The public is invited to this free event. His book will be available for purchase, or bring your own copy to have it signed by the author!
Bailey, whose voice is a combination of Dave Barry and Rick Steves with just a soupçon of Montaigne, writes with humor and wit about how these experiences reflect the issues and conflicts of contemporary American life: environmental change, life in digital times, and the vicissitudes of arriving at ripe old age. Throughout The Enjoy Agenda, Bailey asks, “Where am I and how did I get here?” a question less about geography than the difficulties and gifts of becoming a husband and ultimately a partner changed and improved by a very smart woman and challenged and delighted by a gradual but seismic culture shift.
Rick Bailey is a retired English instructor who taught writing for thirty-eight years at Henry Ford Community College in Michigan. He is the author or editor of several books on writing, including The Creative Writer’s Craft, and is the author of American English, Italian Chocolate: Small Subjects of Great Importance (Nebraska, 2017).
