UPDATE: WE PREVIOUSLY LISTED THIS AT 6PM BUT IT'S AT 7PM. Come early and have a brew! Flicker Theatre & Bar will host C.C. Humphreys on Friday, June 14, 2013, at 7 pm as part of the author’s “Books & Brews” tour. The event celebrates the first novel in the American Revolution spy series Jack Absolute and will include a chat about the book, a dramatic reading, and a Q&A. Copies of Jack Absolute will be available for purchase through Avid Bookshop, and attendees 21 and over can enjoy the brews on tap. “My Athens event falls on Flag Day in the U.S.,” said Humphreys. “So come to Flicker Theatre & Bar and let’s settle Revolutionary War differences over a few pints and some words from Jack Absolute.” Humphreys has long had a love affair with the character of Jack Absolute. The actor played the dashing leading man in a British tour of The Rivals early in his career and decided to bring him from the stage to the page when he began writing novels. ABOUT THE BOOK: It’s 1777 when Captain Jack Absolute becomes a sensation throughout London. This news comes as a shock to the real Jack Absolute when he arrives in England after four months at sea. But there’s little time for outrage before he finds himself dueling for his life. Right when he thinks he’s finally won, he is forced to flee London by the quickest means possible, becoming a spy in the American Revolution. From the streets of London, to the pivotal battle of Saratoga, to a hunt for a double agent in Philadelphia, Jack Absolute marks the exhilarating beginning of an epic historical series and a character you won’t soon forget. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: C.C. Humphreys is a novelist, fight choreographer, and actor who played Jack Absolute in The Rivals for a six-month run in London in the mid-1980s. When he became a full-time writer a decade ago, he decided to transform his leading man into a title character. Humphreys has written seven historical fiction novels including The French Executioner, which was runner-up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers 2002. The Jack Absolute series will feature three books: Jack Absolute, The Blooding of Jack Absolute, and Absolute Honor.
