Gary Delanoeye, EdD, Education Programs Associate Faculty, will be signing and reading excerpts from his latest book Clean Shorts at Santa Barbara’s iconic Chaucer’s Bookstore on June 27, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Barbara Greenleaf, former Associate Vice Chancellor, Advancement & External Affairs, will also be signing her book This Old Body.
Clean Shorts is a collection of twelve very different short stories. Each one is drawn from Gary’s experiences and/or his imagination. Some of the stories come from travel adventures… or misadventures. Some have a local flavor, things that happened closer to Gary’s home near Santa Barbara. The stories are about people and their places and sometimes, people who are out of place. Clean Shorts breaks from the tradition of Gary’s two novels Checking in at the Crowbar Hotel and Letters from the Outs that explore the culture of incarcerated youths. Instead, Clean Shorts covers different slices of life with humor, insight, and drama.
