Booked: Optimists Versus Monsters

dreadful.pngToday’s edition of our Booked feature includes monster mash-up writers and publishing optimists in two events located hundreds of miles apart.

Tonight Guy LeCharles Gonzalez, Ami Greko, and Ryan Chapman will host another 7x20x21 event, giving seven industry innovators a chance to show off their projects in quick slideshows. Click here to RSVP for the event at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC.

If you live in Chicago, check out Quirk Book’s Monster Mash-Up Panel at the C2E2 festival on Friday. Here are more details: “Seth Grahame-Smith, Ben Winters, Steve Hockensmith, and Jason Rekulak: all the masterminds behind the Quirk Classics in one place, for the first time. Ever! If you’re going to C2E2, come by Room E351 on April 16 at 8PM. They will all be there to talk zombies, kraken, robots, more zombies, ninjas, and Jane Austen.”

Booked features the best events that come across our literary radar. Got any suggestions? Send them here. (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of The Dreadfuls image via)
