Author Reading & Book Signing – Alec Neu

February 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Local author Alec Neu will read from and sign copies of his debut middle grade novel, ‘The Great Appalachian Redemption’ on Thursday, February 1, at 6 PM at Cicada Books & Coffee.

Let us know you’re coming (it’s free!) by registering!


Follow middle schoolers Ali, Jake, and Noah as they are sent by the Mothman to the utopian city of Huxley on a mission – to convince its citizens to leave their luxurious paradise and return to West Virginia – begging the question: why would anyone choose to come back to a state that is losing more and more people each day?

Along the way, the three friends will visit typical Appalachian towns, run into popular West Virginian cryptids and Native American spirits, and set forth a chain of events that will lead to a final showdown between the region’s most popular monsters.

The Great Appalachian Redemption creates a window into the common dilemmas and experiences of the coming-of-age Appalachian and ultimately provides solutions for these popular crises.


A simple man who wants to bring mythology to the mountains of Appalachia.
