Hartford Native Kirker Butler Releasing First Novel “Pretty Ugly” [VIDEO]

The first time I heard of Kirker Butler, I still knew him as Kirk, it was more than likely through my Dad. He had Kirk as a student at Ohio County Middle School in the early 80s. When I first saw him, he was onstage with my Dad in a Hartford Courhouse Players production of another Kentucky native Jesse Stuart's play 'The Thread That Runs So True'. That was a LONG time ago. Now, after finding success behind the scenes as a TV writer/producer ('Family Guy', 'What I Like About You', 'The Cleveland Show', 'The Neighbors', and most recently, ABC's 'Galavant') Butler is releasing his first novel "Pretty Ugly" this week and it centers around the world of, get ready for it, child beauty pageants!
