Join Charles Monroe-Kane for the launch of his new, riveting memoir, LITHIUM JESUS, in the Community Room of the Madison Central Public Library on Mifflin, co-sponsored by the Wisconsin Book Festival. More event details here: http://www.wisconsinbookfestival.org/events/lithium-jesus-memoir-mania

“A young man grapples with bipolar ‘voices’ via religion, hedonism, activism, and Lithium. In his debut, Monroe-Kane, a Peabody Award–winning public radio producer, brings a fresh perspective to familiar memoir territory. . . . [A] compelling account of wrestling with inner turmoil against gritty, dramatic international settings.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The mind of Charles Monroe-Kane crackles with a scary, exhilarating, manic, and beautiful energy. His book left my mouth agape. His story bobs and weaves, lulls readers into the right jab—then clocks us with a roundhouse. Charles lives his story like no other, and he tells it like nobody else can.” —Glynn Washington, host of public radio program Snap Judgment
