Author Jeff VanderMeer will be at Grace Trinity Church in Uptown tonight (Thursday) at 7:00 PM. VanderMeer will discuss his latest novel, Borne, with MSP-based author Benjamin Percy.
Borne released this past Tuesday after much anticipation. Of Borne, Kirkus says:
“VanderMeer’s deep talent for worldbuilding takes him into realms more reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road than of the Shire. Superb: a protagonist and a tale sure to please fans of smart, literate fantasy and science fiction.”
So. That’s encouraging.
Vandermeer’s previous effort was the spectacular Southern Reach Trilogy and if Borne comes close to the mystifying satisfaction of that series, then thanks, Jeff.
The event is hosted by Magers & Quinn and is free and open to the public, but the booksellers are asking for RSVPs.
