You’ll get to meet different authors and artists, including some bestselling international authors like Pierce Brown and Mark Danielewski.
Brown is the author of the bestselling Red Rising trilogy, a science fiction – fantasy with three books – Red Rising, Golden Son, and Morning Star. It follows a lowborn miner named Darrow who seeks to take revenge on the ruling class of their futuristic society after he discovers their deceit and betrayal.
Danielewski is a novelist best known for his debut novel House of Leaves which won the New York Public Library’s Young Lions Fiction Award in 2000. It follows a family that encounters an awful darkness in their new home and features experimental choices in form like colored words, handwritten pages, doodles, and drawings. His other works include the novella The Fifty Year Sword and the ongoing 27-volume serial novel The Familiar.
