Nathan Ballingrud & Marly Youmans Reading & Booksigning

28 Aug 2013

On Wednesday, August 28, 7pm At Malaprop's Bookstore & Cafe, join us for an evening of fiction as Nathan Ballingrud reads from "North American Lake Monsters: Stories." “Ballingrud is one of my favorite short fiction writers,” says award-winning fantasy fiction author Jeff VanderMeer. The characters in "North American Lake Monsters" are driven to extremes by love. Sometimes, they are ruined; sometimes redeemed. All are faced with the loneliest corners of themselves and strive to find an escape. Appearing with Ballingrud, novelist Marly Youmans will present "A Death at the White Camellia Orphanage" -- the story of a boy who undertakes a picaresque journey through society, struggling in the cruel but sometimes lovely world of Depression-era America.

This event is free and open to the public.
