Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with Welcome to Night Vale author Joseph Fink, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Alice Isn't Dead, with Chavisa Woods!
Keisha Taylor lived a quiet life with her wife, Alice, until the day that Alice disappeared. After months of searching, presuming she was dead, Keisha held a funeral, mourned, and gradually tried to get on with her life. But that was before Keisha started to see her wife, again and again, in the background of news reports from all over America. Alice isn’t dead, and she is showing up at every major tragedy and accident in the country. Following a line of clues, Keisha takes a job with a trucking company, Bay and Creek Transportation, and begins searching for Alice. She eventually stumbles on an otherworldly conflict being waged in the quiet corners of our nation’s highway system—uncovering a conspiracy that goes way beyond one missing woman.
“This spooky third novel by Welcome to Night Vale creator Fink is similarly based on an original podcast and offers a more threatening but equally personal take on the horror genre . . . A terrifying new storytelling experience that affirms, even in our darkest moments, that love conquers all.” -Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Alice Isn't Dead from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
