Columbus Books and Beer welcomes Wisconsin author and retired Milwaukee firefighter Gregory Renz for a discussion about his award-winning novel “Beneath the Flames” Thursday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. at Cercis Brewing Company, 140 N. Dickason, Columbus. Renz’s debut novel has gained attention with some stellar endorsements and reviews, including one from Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the bestselling novel, “The Deep End of the Ocean.” She said, “Gregory Renz’s new novel is a triumph of poignancy, compassion, and restraint. In it, a man’s regret is transformed to triumph.” The novel has also won the Readers’ Favorite International Gold Medal. While Renz was a fire captain, he was involved in the dramatic rescue of two little boys from their burning basement bedroom.
