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 have two wonderful authors—Rob Reynolds and REYoung—and we’ll be celebrating the recent launch of Rob’s new novel, Wire Mother Monkey Baby.
Rob Reynolds’ stories have appeared in the Tampa Review, Kennesaw Review (online), Mad Hatter’s Review, flashquake, Vestal Review, and Eunoia Review, and have been honored by the Austin Chronicle. “What You Can Learn in a Bar” was anthologized in You Have Time for This: Contemporary American Short-Short Stories. He’s a former contributing associate and contributing editor of the Harvard Review and the Boston Book Review. In what seems like a previous life, he taught English for four years at Tom Petty’s alma mater, Gainesville High School in Florida. He’s lived in Austin since 1994, and is a big fan of cats, dogs, and children. Well, most of them.
REYoung was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and lives in Austin, Texas, in a limestone cave deep beneath the city. He is the author of the novels Unbabbling (Dalkey Archive Press, 1997) and Margarito and the Snowman (also DAP, 2016).
