Book signing at Gallery for Out the Door! to Benefit Planned Parenthood

Out the door! book signingOn Sunday, June 11th from 4:00- 6:00pm, Margaret Lockwood Gallery in Sturgeon Bay will host a reading and book signing for Out the Door! by Marianna Beck writing under the name of M.L. Collins. All proceeds from sales of the book will go to benefit Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

A satirical novel set in Door County, Out the Door! has been described as a story that’s a little about everything: geology, sex, politics, the environment, prairie voles, cheese curds, casinos, aphrodisiacs, sturgeon, trilobites, gulls, Hat Island, bit of mystery – and much more!

Reviewers on Amazon have called the novel “a delightful romp of a novel”, “a story packed with intrigue and madcap comedy”— “full of lots of twists” and with “characters well-developed and quirky.”

ML Collins book artworkM.L. has worked as a free-lance writer and lectured extensively on the history of sex, fashion and culture at institutions including the School of the Art institute, the university of Chicago Graham School and most recently, Columbia College.
