School Board features high school senior Tucker “Catfish” Davis, who embarks on a quixotic attempt to be elected to the local school board. Armed with idealism and an ever-present fedora, he enlists his school buddies, an indicted Louisiana governor, and a gay journalist with political ambitions to join him in opposing a candidate backed by an Enron-esque oil services company. Based on an actual 1999 news story, School Board is an entertaining but satirical debut novel that revels in the diversity, madness and absurdities of the Bayou City.
MIKE FREEDMAN lives in Houston, where he was born and raised. After graduating college, he served in the Army in the infantry and in the Special Forces as a Green Beret.
