You might already be familiar with some of Malvern’s regular reading series, like Novel Night (it’s tomorrow!), I Scream Social, and our Malvern Books’ Club: Reading Classics from New York Review Books (there’s still time to join us for April). Well, we’ve another sensational series to add to the mix: Fantastical Fictions!
Fantastical Fictions is an odd-monthly event focusing on the literary fantastic across genres and cultures. Hosted by Rebecca Schwarz and Chris Brown, the series features published writers reading from new works, as well as an open mic for works in progress. Q&A sessions and discussions based on the fantastic literature available on our shelves round out a fun evening that’s sure to appeal to anyone who fancies some fanciful fiction. If you’d like to sign up for the FF mailing list, please do email us. We send out occasional newsletters to let you know about upcoming events and new works of fantastic literature in the store.
Our next Fantastical Fictions event will be on Thursday, May 5th. In the meantime, why not catch up on some footage from past Fantastical evenings? The videos from our first event, featuring legendary Austin-based science fiction writer Howard Waldrop, are shown below, and we also have a YouTube playlist that’s well worth a watch.
