November 1st: A Very Special Reading

Saturday was a night of beautiful books, beautiful stories, and beautiful people. Here are some of the highlights:

The crowd filleth.

A.E. Peterson read an excerpt from her novel-in-progress for the first time in public. It's full of beautiful language, some of it from talkative rivers.

Darcelle Blau read three stunning short works, including an overview of poppers and extreme sports.

Aaron Cohick, founder of NewLights Press, previewed THE DROWNABLE SPECIES by Brian Evenson, a handmade, limited-edition release.

Brian Evenson treated the crowd to a selection from THE DROWNABLE SPECIES, an examination of identity and reality with some Poe-like narratives included to haunt us all.

See you November 15th for Brian Eden, Deborah Rudacille, and Lia Purpura!
