Join us for another installment of Novel Night, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: published authors will read from their books and there’ll be an audience Q & A. And we’ll also have “Book Talk,” in which an intrepid Malvern staff member will introduce you to one of our favorite prose titles. Also worth noting: we’re offering 20% OFF ALL FICTION TITLES during Novel Night (from 6pm till closing).
This month Amber Elby will be celebrating the launch of her new book, Cauldron’s Bubble, a fantasy tale of a witch’s curse and an enchanted island which features characters from Shakespeare. And K.P. Gresham will be reading from Three Days at Wrigley Field, her novel of baseball, romance, and one woman’s quest for both.
Amber Elby was born in Grand Ledge, Michigan but spent much of her childhood in the United Kingdom. She began writing when she was three years old and created miniature books by asking her family how to spell every, single, word. Several years later, she saw her first Shakespearean comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, in London. Many years later, she studied Creative Writing at Michigan State University’s Honors College before earning her Master of Fine Arts degree in Screenwriting at the University of Texas at Austin. She currently resides in Texas with her husband and two daughters and spends her time teaching, traveling, and getting lost in imaginary worlds.
K.P. Gresham is the award-winning author of Three Days at Wrigley Field, a book she began writing while attending the Rice University Novels Writing Colloquiem in Houston, Texas. She is also the author of The Pastor Matt Hayden Mystery series of which The Preacher’s First Murder is currently available. K.P. has won awards in the Mystery Writers of America novel contests as well as the Bay Area Writers League Best Novel competition. A full-time writer, K.P. and her husband call the Austin area home.
