Alex McGlothlin

Alex McGlothlin, the author of The Piratization of Daniel Barnes and The Medium of Desire, will be doing a book signing at the Buchanan County Public Library on Thursday November 8th at 6pm.  Mr. McGlothlin is a Grundy native currently living in Richmond, Virginia.  He graduated from the University of Virginia, West Virginia University, and Georgetown University. 

Kirkus Reviews reviewed The Medium of Desire in their May 17, 2018 issue: “A love story set in Virginia and nestled at the intersection of art and everyday life…..the author creates highly believable characters amid the sobering realism.” 

Copies of the Medium of Desire will be available for sale that night.  The Friends of the Buchanan County Public Library will be providing light refreshments.  For more information, contact the library.
