Thrill Me: Essays on Fiction

Benjamin Percy
Author Event (Reference)
Thursday March 02, 2017 7:00 PM Author Benjamin Percy challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are mutually exclusive. He looks to disparate sources to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum and the speculative, as well as character, setting and dialogue, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader. He will be in conversation with writer Jonathan Lee, author of High Dive.
