Join us on Thursday, October 29, at 6:30 for a discussion on this month’s book, Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link, this year’s NEA Big Read Selection.
Kelly Link has lit up adult literary publishing, and Viking is honored to publish her first YA story collection. Through the lens of Link’s vivid imagination, nothing is what it seems, and everything deserves a second look. From the multiple award-winning The Faery Handbag, in which a teenager’s grandmother carries an entire village (or is it a man-eating dog?) in her handbag, to the near-future of The Surfer, whose narrator (a soccer-playing skeptic) waits with a planeload of refugees for the aliens to arrive, Link’s stories are funny and full of unexpected insights and skewed perspectives on the world.
