September Author Events au go-go

For whatever reason, over the last year, more and more publishers and authors have offered to have (FREE!) events at Green Apple. That bounty has hit some sort of critical mass this month: we're hosting NINE events in September.

Last night was a look at SF history through photographs with
Rebecca Schall. Tonight is Joseph Mattson, author of Empty the Sun. How can you go wrong with a pre-apocalyptic cross-country race to bury the murdered past, culminating in a gunfight with God? To top it off, the book comes with a CD that sets this beautifully reckless novel of transgressive loss to an open-road, open-whiskey soundtrack composed by Drag City recording artist Six Organs of Admittance.

Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs); Rick Bass (fiction); Dave Eggers (fiction); Saul Austerlitz (on American film comedy); Fred Lyon (on SF history in photographs) and John Casti (on why mood matters).

And next month brings Litquake and another bounty of fantastic authors.

So if you're not already on our email list, sign up here. Or bookmark our events page so that when you're itching to go out, you can include literature and your friends at Green Apple in your plans. There's a seat waiting for you. . .
