Join us as we celebrate the launch of David Hayden's debut short story collection Darker With the Lights On! David will give a brief reading, followed by a discussion with Maryse Meijer (author of Heartbreaker and the forthcoming Northwood) and a signing. Refreshments will be served.
The Guardian writes, "The 20 stories in this debut collection from David Hayden are strange, uncomfortable fables of memory, metamorphosis, time, disassociation and death: hard to fathom, but impossible to ignore; twisty and riddling, yet with a blunt impact that reverberates long after the final page."
We hope you'll join us for this special event! Seating is limited; RSVP here.
We're very excited to announce that our grand opening is this coming Friday, November 10th! We'll have live music, drinks, and other goodies. Festivities start at 5pm, music starts at 7pm and we'll be there until 9pm. The opening coincides with the Fine Arts Building Open Studios so there will be plenty of other awesome stuff to see that night too!

LIVE PODCAST TAPING with Lumpen Radio. We'll be welcoming Tori Telfer into the 'studio' to talk about her new book LADY KILLERS. Inspired by Telfer's Jezebel column “Lady Killers,” this thrilling and entertaining compendium investigates female serial killers and their crimes through the ages. Seating is LIMITED.
When you think of serial killers throughout history, the names that come to mind are ones like Jack the Ripper, John Wayne Gacy, and Ted Bundy. But what about Tillie Klimek, Moulay Hassan, Kate Bender? The narrative we’re comfortable with is the one where women are the victims of violent crime, not the perpetrators. In fact, serial killers are thought to be so universally, overwhelmingly male that in 1998, FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood infamously declared in a homicide conference, “There are no female serial killers.”
