Daryl Gregory with Nancy Kress & Django Wexler
We’re glad to welcome Daryl Gregory, the author of many novels for adults and for young readers, and a recent transplant to Seattle to our stage tonight. He’ll read from Spoonbenders, which was both a Nebula finalist and one of NPR’s Best Books of the Year in 2017. Now out in a new paperback edition from Vintage, Spoonbenders, has received much praise and admiration.
“Here, a savory mix of disparate ingredients are blended into a perfectly delicious dish of a novel. Stir in psychic powers and family drama, throw in the essence of a 1980s coming-of-age film, with a sprinkling of heist plot and mob action. The voices of the Telemachus family are compelling, whether following Matty and his awakening powers; his mother, Irene, through the difficulties of loving people when she knows their every lie; or Buddy, who is lost in precognitive visions...Come for the magic, the family relationships, or the mysteries of the Telemachuses themselves. Readers won't be able to put down this compelling literary fantasy.”-Library Journal.
Two Seattle authors join Daryl Gregory tonight. Nancy Kress, author most recently of the Yesterday’s Kin trilogy, which begins with Tomorrow’s Kin and If Tomorrow Comes (Tor) and Django Wexler, author of the Shadow Campaigns series, which began with The Thousand Names (Ace) and continued most recently with a fifth book, The Infernal Battalion.
