UntitledTown Book and Author Festival is excited to welcome New York Times-bestselling author Benjamin Percy for a reading from his forthcoming novel The Dark Net, which Dean Koontz says "is a megawatt defibrillator to the reader’s heart. Quirky but very human characters confront an explosive emergence of the supernatural into our world, in this imaginative, spooky, swiftly paced tale threaded through with dark humor.”
Benjamin Percy is the author of Thrill Me: Essays on Fiction. He is also the author of three novels, most recently The Dead Lands, as well as two books of short stories. His honors include an NEA Fellowship, the Whiting Writers’ Award, two Pushcart Prizes, and the Plimpton Prize.
General, non-reserved seating is free and open to the public, based on space availability.
