Prepare to have your tongue firmly in cheek and ears pricked up for two of our favorite writers. It's been too long since we've seen either of these guys.
Jack Womack is the author of seven novels, most notably Random Acts of Senseless Violence, all presently in print here and in the UK; and non-fiction art book, The Flying Saucers Are Real! (Anthology Editions), which came out last year. He still lives in New York, where he once saw Roy Cohn but has never seen a flying saucer.
James Morrow is the author of nine novels, including a postmodern historical epic, The Last Witchfinder; a Mary Shelley homage, The Philosopher’s Apprentice; and a Darwinian extravaganza, Galápagos Regained. He has twice received the World Fantasy Award and the Nebula Award, as well as the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire, the Prix Utopia, and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award.
The Cafe has excellent food, a coffee bar, beer and wine. The Jenna freebie table will offer books and goodies, as will the raffle for any who donate.
After the event, please join us as we treat our readers for dinner and drinks at the cafe.
