Teacher with Alec Clayton

On November 4th at 5pm, we're having fan-favorite Alec Clayton read from his newest novel, Teacher, over the interwebs.

Intense, funny, and true to life, Teacher begins with a damaged and uncertain Eva McRoy, a bisexual high school English teacher who lost her child after a tumultuous divorce. Her self-identity is now under threat at work and in relationships. Through her struggles, she discovers a passion for justice and renews a sense of self that had waned.

Alec Clayton came of age in Mississippi during the height of the civil rights movement and
moved to Olympia, Washington in the summer of 1988, the town’s bicentennial year. He is a
past-president and newsletter editor for his local PFLAG chapter and a longtime LGBTQ rights
activist. His youngest son committed suicide after a gay bashing in1995. The story of Eva
McRoy and the other characters in Teacher are informed by the life he continues to live as a
long-time published novelist and journalist who covers issues important to the arts and human
Alec writes art and theater reviews for The News Tribune, the Weekly Volcano, and Oly Arts.
His short stories and novel excerpts have been published in Empty Mirror, Creative Colloquy
and Chaotic Merge. Teacher is his tenth novel, and he has written two books about art.

Orca Books Co-op is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
