Sarah Gailey in conversation with Ayize Jama-Everett

We're incredibly pleased to welcome Hugo Award-winning author Sara Gailey for the release of their new fantasy novel, Magic for Liars! When a gruesome murder is discovered at The Osthorne Academy of Young Mages, where her estranged twin sister teaches Theoretical Magic, reluctant detective Ivy Gamble is pulled into the world of untold power and dangerous secrets. A poignant and bittersweet family tragedy disguised as a mystery but with a magic all its own (Kirkus Reviews), this sharp, mainstream fantasy meets compelling thrills of investigative noir. 

Gailey will be in-conversation with Ayize Jama-Everett, local author of Liminal People, a fast-paced science fiction thriller with shades of the Matrix or Richard Morgan's Takeshi Kovacs novels. Beautifully wrapped inside a page-turning sci-fi adventure mystery are the questions of great literature: what happens to the children our world abuses and discards? What kinds of damage can damaged people enact? What happens when the wisp of family ties wraps those on the edge into embrace? Now what happens if these people have powers? Welcome to the world of Liminal People (Linda)!

Please RSVP for this event. Book bundle tickets are also available. You DO NOT need to sign up for a general RSVP if you purchase a book bundle ticket. Bundled tickets include one copy of Magic for Liars and admits you and one guest.
