What is the event about?
Join us for this month's Second Sunday Author Series as we welcome Mickey Brent to the Women's Museum.
About the Book: Underwater Vibes is an unforgettable, quirky tale that takes place in Brussels, Belgium. It is a contemporary romance with an LGBTQ twist, showcasing multilingual, multicultural characters with plenty of humor. Its talented author, Mickey Brent, created this highly entertaining piece of literary fiction to entice all kinds of readers. The idea for Underwater Vibes came as an assignment for a college English composition course. The story was about a plump, shy girl—a loner—who learned to swim in a lake one summer. Mickey Brent’s teacher loved the story and urged her to keep writing. Years later, while taking a creative writing course in Brussels, Belgium, Mickey remembered that original essay. Each day, as she biked through Brussels, she jotted down new ideas for the story. Despite minor accidents with light poles and a parked car, she kept up her pace until she had birthed a unique, humorous novel. Now, like a delicious fruit, Underwater Vibes is at last ripe—ready for its diverse readers to devour.
