In addition to our seasonal reading list we also have Da Chicken Shack’s 1st Book of the Year. For 2015 we have chosen Needles For Free by Ryan K Smith. This is a very unique story based on true events and written from a manic perspective, inspired by Daniel Keyes’ “Flowers for Aglernod”. The best book of 2015 hands down. We look forward to works by Ryan K. Smith.
Ryan K Smith, grew up in Chester, PA and is staff writer for various newspapers and magazines and a contributing writer to Complex, Ebony and Don Diva.
