This event is now available to watch on our YouTube page, along with the rest of our 2020 festival programming.

With support from Craig Newmark Philanthropies

New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore celebrates the release of his newest novel, Shakespeare for Squirrels, a wildly entertaining murder mystery riffing on Dashiell Hammett and the Bard’s most performed play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. At the same time, Matt Ruff (author of Lovecraft Country) releases his latest novel 88 Names, a technothriller which begins as a whirlwind online adventure, and soon spills over into the real world with characters like North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, whose interest in VR gaming has more to do with power than entertainment. Don't miss this witty and geek-friendly evening as both authors read from and discuss their work. FREE, $5-10 suggested donation

Registration is required for Zoom access. Spots are limited.
Event will also be livecasted on Facebook Live.
