Cursed

Roger Coleman's new book begins with a curse on Kansas City. It's the dreaded curse of dullness. Coleman spent 42 years as a minister in midtown, Kansas City and started writing five years ago when he saw the city becoming younger, more vibrant and more open. He wanted to document that shift. His protagonist is a boy whose mission is to lift the curse of dullness. His journey takes him all over town.
