This month - Daryl Gregory, Leah Cutter, and Jennifer Brozek.
Daryl Gregory will read from his new novel, Spoonbenders, about a family of down-on-their-luck psychics living in Chicago. CIA agents, mobsters, and a long-time nemesis descend on the Amazing Telemachus Family in the summer of 1995. In their review, the New York Times said, “Gregory writes with humor and charm, offering up a rollicking and quick-paced plot tailor-made for summer….” And he would add: Only slightly ill-fitting for autumn!
Jennifer will be reading from The Salton Academy, the last safe haven in a zombie apocalypse. There are cracks in the foundation and everyone within the walls has begun to realize that the rules of society no longer apply. Evan has discovered there is a conspiracy to murder the only thing he's ever loved: his dog. It's not his fault he got bit by a zombie.
