“Flash fiction poster girl” Nancy Stohlman
launches her newest collection of flash fiction, Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities
, at the Mercury Caf
e, with an original performance based on the book. Music will be provided by Nick Busheff, who calls the show “amusingly dark, zany, and sometimes disturbing.” In other words, this is the perfect night out in late October. Books will be available for purchase (and autographs!), and tickets are available now
Kristen Barnett, The Bug Who Thought He Lost His Buzz
Sunday, October 27, 12:30 p.m.
Zoe’s Coffee House
11225 Decatur Street, Westminster
Free (but bring a book to donate!)
Author Kristen Barnett reads from and signs her children’s book The Bug Who Thought He Lost His Buzz: What Happens When the Big, Bad Beast Stings
. It's all about supporting children dealing with cancer (the “Big Bad Beast”), and a portion of the proceeds from the Watt’s Bugging You
event will go to cancer research and education. Kids can dress in costume, buy a book and bring one to donate — all donated books will go to Brent’s Place
, the Aurora home away from home for families while kids receive treatment for life-threatening illnesses at local hospitals.
