Luke Geddes Author Talk and Signing

06:00 PM , January 28, 2020 | Watermark Books & Café

Watermark Books & Café will host Luke Geddes for a presentation and signing of Heart of Junk on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 6:00 p.m. A hilarious debut novel about an eclectic group of merchants at a Kansas antique mall who become implicated in the kidnapping of a local beauty pageant star. Equally comical and suspenseful, Heart of Junk is also a biting commentary on our current Marie Kondo era. It examines why certain objects resonate with us so deeply, rebukes Kondo’s philosophy of wholesale purging, and argues that “junk” can have great value—connecting us not only to our personal pasts but to our shared human history. As author Luke Geddes writes: “A collection was a record of a life lived, maybe not well or happily but at least with attention and passion. It was autobiography made whole.”
