For the Road Anthology to be Released Dec. 10 

Columbus, Ohio — Columbus Creative Cooperative is proud to announce the release of its latest anthology, For the Road: Short Stories of America’s Highways.

For the Road takes readers into the minds of ten exceptional authors, collecting tales from the highway. America has a great literary tradition of the road – from Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley and The Grapes of Wrath, to Kerouac’s On the Road, the highway has consistently represented a place of adventure and the prospect of something better over the horizon. From literary fiction, to science fiction and ghost stories, CCC’s new anthology examines the world from hearth and home.

“One thing that’s really excited me about this book is the variety of genres and interests it represents,” said Brad Pauquette, CCC director. “I think it’s one of the best anthologies our members have produced so far.”

The public is invited to celebrate the anthology’s launch at 7 p.m. Wednesday, December 10 at the Claddagh Irish Pub, 585 S. Front Street, Columbus. The launch party is free and open to the public, and will provide a chance to clink glasses with anthology authors, chat with other writers, enjoy some Irish pub fare and pick up a copy of For the Road.

CCC’s ninth anthology, For the Road will be available in paperback and e-book formats on December 10. Copies can be purchased from CCC’s online store,
