An Evening with Novelist Joe Hill

Presented by National Writers Series

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF FRIGHT

Following in the footsteps of his legendary father, Stephen King, Joe Hill brings to his novels a vigor and originality all his own.

A #1 New York Times bestselling author, his work has been highly praised by the likes of Neil Gaiman, Time Magazine and novelist Michael Kortya. Every one of his novels have been optioned by Hollywood, including Horns, which was adapted into a feature film starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Joe Hill will appear on the City Opera House stage for a conversation with Loren Estleman, a literary treasure who has written nearly 80 books. An authority on both criminal history and the American West, Estleman is one of the most critically acclaimed authors of his generation, having received 22 national writing awards.

Hill will talk about his newest book, “Strange Weather,” a short story collection populated by a skydiver, a Silicon Valley teen, and a Florida mall cop. The book’s settings seem normal enough, but “normal” morphs into the strange and launches readers into the throes of the supernatural. Nature herself becomes a sinister and apocalyptic force.

Hill is also author of The Fireman, NOS4A2, Heart-Shaped Box, and Horns. He has earned numerous awards, including the Bram Stoker Award, the British Fantasy Award, and the Eisner Award for Best Writer for the comic series Locke & Key, illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez.

Rust City Book Con 2017

Rust City Book Con is a casual convention and book signing in Troy, MI, with the intent to introduce readers to new authors as well as the chance to interact with current favorites.

We’ll be focusing on all GENRE fiction, so there’s bound to be some interesting and diverse topics discussed at the daily panels. In the evenings we’ll be partying and creating some fascinating mayhem with meet & greets, parties, and other activities.

Saturday’s charity book sale and signing is a FREE activity, open to the public, however we are asking everyone to bring a gently used book (childrens through adult) to help fill a new #LittleFreeLibrary to be installed within the community after the event. The library will be revealed/displayed throughout the weekend.

We’ll have a fabulous lineup of authors, ranging from indie to NYT Bestsellers, that will be sure to tempt readers of all walks of life. Come celebrate the authors who write the stories we love to read with us – Aug 4-6, 2017!

I know many readers tend to stick with their preferred genres, and there’s nothing wrong with that; but you never know what you’ll find, what you’ll like, unless you take a look.
