MINNEAPOLIS: Wordplay Book Festival READING

  • Open Book Minneapolis, MN (map)

Open Book Stage (2nd Floor, part of Street Fest access): Dobby Gibson (Little Glass Planet, Graywolf Press, 2019) maps the strange and the mundane in this candid and subliminal collection of poems. Widower Esteban Bellacosa is just trying to pick up the pieces of his life when he wanders into an alternative universe in what is best described as a genre-bending, philosophical surrealist thriller from debut novelist Fernando A. Flores (Tears of the Trufflepig, FSG Originals, 2019). These two authors and friends will each read, followed by a casual conversation on friendship and work.
