  • The Dial Bookshop 410 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

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.
