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 we’re delighted to be celebrating our first Pride-themed Novel Night with three guests: Michael Aaron Casares, who will be reading from his debut novel, The Distance To The End (Serasac Press, 2016); Lee Thomas, who will be reading from his crime novel, Down On Your Knees (Lethe Press, 2016); and María Limón, who will read from the story that appeared in the collection Entre Guadalupe y Malinche: Tejanas in Literature and Art (UT Press; 2016).
