Please join me at Parallel Lit on Friday, 4/12 at 8:30 pm at Paulista Kitchen in Oakland!
The awesome and amazing Meg Elison, author of the Road to Nowhere post-apocalyptic series, is founding and hosting this reading series that will celebrate speculative fiction in the East Bay. You can get tickets here at Eventbrite, but you can also pay at the door–$10 is not a bad price at all to hear this crew read our fiction and talk about our work! Plus, Paulista Kitchen is a fantastic cafe and restaurant featuring Brazilian cuisine with California influences and the delicious cashew milk ice cream of Mr. Dewie’s.
Yeah, Mr. Dewie’s is that good. Mmm.
No, I am not above bribing you with food photos. It’s my superpower. Meg and I will be joined by (and eating ice cream with) three other badass local spec fic authors: Tim Pratt, Juliette Wade, and Caroline Ratajski. Come join us in welcoming the birth of Parallel Lit!
I would love to have you join me in Alameda for this author event. As I’m the only author on the agenda, I am a bit nervous about having a turnout…this is why I usually invite more authors to read with me. 😉 RSVP through Eventbrite right here, and yes, it’s free. I will have copies of Wings Unseen available for sale.
Host Kevis Brownson and I will have a conversation about my writing and the organizations I’m involved with, then I’ll do a reading, then there will be audience Q&A, and then a signing and reception to wrap up the evening. 6 pm is early! So don’t worry about sliding in a bit late.
Here’s the series description: For the third year, the AAUW Alameda presents a spring series of talks featuring authors who live and write in Alameda and nearby, now co-sponsored by the Friends of the Alameda Free Library. Our February author Rebecca Gomez Farrell will discuss her novel Wings Unseen and her current writing projects.
Hope to see you there!
