HLGU to host Book Signing with Alum Matt Gordon

The Hannibal-LaGrange University English department is hosting a book signing with Missouri Author Matt Gordon and his newly published book The Monkeys of God. The signing will be held in the English department suite on the second floor of the Burt Administration Building on Thursday, April 25, from 1 pm to 4 pm. The book will be available for purchase with a price of $9.99.

Filled with a collection of offbeat "literal shorts," Gordon's book sends readers on a humorous journey through his own life's stories. Be it through driving a van through the mud at the age of four, responding naively to an online scam, or tumbling off a motor scooter, Gordon cleverly uses wit and wisdom to craft an enjoyable book for all.

Gordon graduated from Hannibal-LaGrange University in 2007 with a Bachelor's degree in English. He lives in Missouri with his wife and is currently working on his next book.
