Novel Night with Glen Pourciau & Greg Levin
May 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for another installment of Novel Night, a monthly celebration of all things prose! Here’s how it works: two 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).

Novel Night This month we have readings from Glen Pourciau and Greg Levin. Glen will be reading from his newly released short story collection, View, and Greg will be sharing excerpts from two of his previous novels, The Exit Man and Sick to Death.

Glen Pourciau’s previous collection, Invite, was published by University of Iowa Press in 2008 and won the Iowa Short Fiction Award. Pourciau lives in Plano, Texas.

Greg Levin is an award-winning author of dark comedic fiction. His first novel… meh, nobody but Greg really cares about his first novel. His second novel, The Exit Man, was optioned by HBO for development into a TV series and won a 2015 Independent Publishers Award (a.k.a., an “IPPY”), earning a silver medal for Best Adult Fiction Ebook. Greg’s third novel, Sick to Death, came out in September 2016 and has been hailed by critics everywhere as one of the top three books he has ever written. Author Craig Clevenger (The Contortionist’s Handbook and Dermaphoria) says, “Sick to Death is a tour de force dark comedy.” Greg recently completed a 10-week writing workshop in Portland, Oregon, led by the great Chuck Palahniuk, during which Greg received high praise for his upcoming novel, In Wolf’s Clothing. Some of the praise even came from Chuck himself. Greg resides with his wife, daughter and two cats in Austin, Texas. He is currently wanted by local authorities for refusing to say “y’all” or do the two-step.
