On Thursday, April 9, at 7 p.m., Dalton Publishing presents a very special evening at Cafe Caffeine in South Austin to celebrate the publication of “Stricken: The 5000 Stages of Grief.” This moving collection of essays is co-edited by local, award-winning authors Spike Gillespie and Katherine Tanney.
Not only is this event free and happening at a cool coffee house, it will feature guest readers from Austin's creative community interpreting the work of some of our out-of-town contributors.
Poet and performance artist David Jewell, actress and playwright Amparo Garcia-Crow, filmmaker/funny person Leslie Belt, and playwright C. Denby Swanson will share the bill with "Stricken" writers Owen Egerton, Sandy Silver, Victoria Hendricks, David Zuniga, and the evening's host, Katherine Tanney.
Each reader will share a 10-12 minute excerpt from one of the essays in the book. The subject matter is love, loss, and the grieving process in its many forms. Prepare to be moved.
